We couldn't get too far for too long but we needed a 3rd anniversary trip. This fit the bill for a couple nights.

It was pretty sweet that with all the rain forecast Friday, we were able to race the purple clouds down the mountain and then have it only rain upon arrival at camp for 10 minutes. I put up a living room tarp just in case but left off the tent rainfly. After dinner and fire out, I stashed the extra gathered wood under the vehicle just in case and as we were going to sleep I told Noel if she heard pitter-patter on the tarp, make sure I was awake to put the fly on. She then said, "Like that?" Yes ma'am. I got the fly on and we got to fall asleep to a great storm.

The next day saw no rain and we headed down the creek to see what we could see. Speaking of, it is odd that a bear rumbles around down there at that elevation. We got to the old homestead marked on the topo, ate lunch and swam for a bit in a hole before heading back to camp.

Confident, I took down the tarp that night and it didn't rain again until we were back on pavement Sunday.
Saw 4 deer and some turtles and the usual furry ground scamperers.
Good times. Excited for number 4.
