Thanksgiving Camping - Day 4

Friday, November 27, 2009


Early to awaken this morning!  GO wore her sleep sack again, and we all sat by the fire for our breakfast.  This is one of my favorite things about camping!  Sharing breakfast with friends and sitting by a warm fire.

We took an early hike today, it was our longest yet - over 2.5 miles!  All the boys collected dried lichen to use as tender for their fires.

The views were amazing.

And none of the Caterpillars complained at all!  We were so proud of them.

Hubby had gotten a nifty Ergo Carrier from some of our friends to borrow, and GO loved riding on her daddy.

She was "helping" him hike part of the time.

And sleeping soundly the other part.

After our long hike, we had a picnic lunch by the South Forks River.  More beautiful views and a nice sheltered area, so the wind wasn't bad.

Then, Hubby and King helped all the boys build another fire.  This is such an important part of preparing them for Boy Scouts - we were glad to have the opportunity to work with them in a smaller group (rather than ALL our Scouts on a Sunday).

Sad to believe we leave tomorrow!
