When we both returned home we grabbed our camping gear, warm clothes and some just-add-water type foods and headed out. We had no reservations, no real plan and no idea where we would end up resting our heads for the evening. After an hourish drive we arrived at our destination and set out to find a campground. The very first place we found had a site available for the night- YES! We set up camp and began cooking dinner... er... boiling water for our freeze dried meal. We had a lovely dinner and then discovered that if you add peanut butter to a regular s'more it's the best tasting camp dessert! Try it!
To our disappointment the Aspen leaves had not yet begun to change to Autumn colors, but we were surprised by what was happening this time of year; the elk in the area were VERY active and they were buguling all night and all the next day. The next day, instead of driving around to see changing trees we drove around to see the elk. Here are a few pictures:
I think I'll be spontaneous more often! We had a fantastic time and, to my surprise, the world didn't end when I didn't finish all of the laundry that weekend.
