Thankscamping or Campsgiving

our site, sunset

our site (viewed not directly into the sun)

Whichever you pick, that's what Bird Nerd and I did this weekend. Much relaxing, fun and hiking was had, despite my forgetting to bring the following:
  • reading material
  • something to write on
  • knitting
bananas are best transported suspended from climbing webbing in the corner of your Jeep

a hat full of trilobites

Here's a little adventure I insisted on:

"that looks suspiciously mine-like, wanna go check it out?"

"I wonder what that rusty box on a stake is?"

"what the ...??? glow in the dark bandages???"

"oooh - there's something inside, I wonder what it is?"

"a MINING CLAIM??? from 1997??? well, that explains the glow in the dark bandages..."

Beauty Vein #1 (it's in the eye of the beholder)
Beauty Vein #4 was later identified by the clearly marked of a big pile of rocks with a hand stamped metal plaque on it
