Camping

Spring break.
Jes' chillin'...

Well, not entirely. We went camping to Turner Falls, OK last week for 3 nights. It was a blast. We have been before and will go back again at the end of summer.
There was an unexpected cold snap right before we left, which brought a wintry mix and a low of 30-something the night before we got there. While we were there the overnight lows were 41, 41 and 45. The days reached 60-something, 60-something and then about 80 on the final day.

We went with a group of close friends and their children and it reminded me of camping trips we had when I was a kid. It was great, I hope to do a big group friends and/or family camping trip every year!

While we were there we spotted numerous sneaky raccoons, a silver fox, a herd of deer, a skunk, lots of trout and minnows, a crayfish, a swarm of buzzards, turtles on a log, turkeys, and a partridge in a pear tree.
