We went on a short backpacking adventure last weekend to Mirror Lake.
We had the trail and lake entirely to ourselves that night with the exception of the swarms of mosquitoes that had dibbs on all the campsites near the lake. We backtracked and made our own campsite in the middle of a rhododendron wilderness. I made a small fire using green wood and we smoked out the few mosquitoes that we still had humming around our heads. Nugget had a ball exploring until bedtime, when we all stuffed ourselves in the little tent and fell asleep to the pitter patter of rain on our tent roof.
When we got home, Gary and I made a deal: I would teach his Gospel Principles lesson on Sunday if he would clean the house. This is a picture of Gary cleaning up the camping stuff:
