“Camping” vs. Camping

Published February 11, 2014 by Jana

I took a vacation from my vacation.  Aunt Janet, Uncle Kent, a few of their friends and I went to White Tank Mountain Regional Park for a few days.

It was “camping” for me, with the finger air quotes.  I just unplugged my house, stowed a few things and drove to the park and hooked back up.  It is certainly not the camping of my youth.

But we had a great time.  Went for a few hikes, had a few campfires, made s’mores, hot dogs and toasted marshmallows.  I even made potatoes with garlic over the fire on the last night.  They were delicious!   Why do we not cook over a fire more often?

I will put pics up tomorrow as well, since there are too many for one post.

This is Don, of Don and Kathy.  I love this picture.  It was just a quick turn and snap thing, I wasn’t even looking in the viewfinder, but it’s a great expression!  He reminded me, just a bit, of my Pappy.
