Adventures in camping...

While John and Katie were out here visiting they wanted to go camping...so we headed down to southwestern Colorado to Eleven Mile State Park for the weekend.

Our tents...



The view...







We took a drive around the park and saw some animals and even made some friends!!!





We love buffalo...



They weren't interested in us...



Classic elk picture...



We got some camping visitors Saturday afternoon...Catherine, Mandy, Mischa and Ollie...



The girls...



We just look good after camping for 24 hours...



Buffalo burgers and s'mores...



Will the ninja (was cold even though it was only in the 50s at night)...



Obviously Katie and I were very serious about our s'mores...





The next day we took the scenic route home (not fun!)....here is John..."oh guys look at that mountain, can we stop and take a picture...(every 10 minutes!)...



Katie and I got tired of the boys so decided to hitch a ride home...no one picked us up...althought we didn't see civilization for like 30 minutes...



Will and John...



Katie and me after we ran up that mountain in the background...



We decided to take a different route back home so we could see more mountains and the countryside...big mistake. We ended up four-wheeling on a dirt road that was very bumpy and very long and popped a tire! Needless to say, we had a spare and changed it but it was a very, very stressful ride home! None of us really talked for the rest of our car ride (which was a couple of hours)...some pictures from the countryside...we didn't feel it was appropriate to take pictures where we had a flat...no one was feeling snap happy...















I've never been so glad to get home! We had a great time with John and Katie!! Next visitors the Goodsons...
