More Camping 101...

So Will didn't post all our fun pictures from the weekend...so here are some more from our very fun camping trip!!





I thought Will looked funny with his black socks and grey bathing suit...



Will and Nick bought knives along with our new tent and air mattress...so they thought they should whittle us sticks for roasting marshmallows...



Setting up our new tent...



Will used his boy scout skills to keep the fire going all night long...







Sunday morning we woke up refreshed from our lovely night on an air mattres...haha..and drove back to Boulder through Rocky Mountain National Park and over the Continental Divide.

We saw two moose...they didn't have really big horns like we were expecting since they were both girls apparently...





Some pictures from our beautiful views we saw along the drive...













After driving over the Continental Divide we decided to check out a possible future campsite in Rocky Mtn Nat'l Forest (we saw lots of signs for bear warnings which made me nervous!) and then we were driving through the campsite and I thought I spotted some elk. They were sitting under some trees right by a camper, so at first I thought they might have been statues...but no, they were real! Two huge elk were sitting beside a family's campsite and apparently had been all morning. We got out and took pictures...it was crazy! They were just napping and even started moving their heads and posing while we took pictures...we were probably 10 feet from them...so unreal!

This is what I saw from the road...







Anyway, it was pretty neat. We really did enjoy camping, and are hoping to go back next weekend to the same place but with kayaks!
