Beginning Camping Season at Sheep Creek

Our annual fishing excursion to the Duck Valley Indian Reservoir signals a sort of waking from a winter long hibernation of outdoor activity.  It marks the first camping trip of the season, and definitely not the last.  This year was all the same as the past and also quite a bit different, with a baby in tow.  Especially with a baby who just wanted to get down in the dirt and stuff handfuls of rocks into her mouth.  What stayed the same, is that it gets cold and WINDY.  It’s also proven that the fishing can be really good (unfortunately Chase and I didn’t have the greatest of luck in this catergory this year).  Starting our camping season at Sheep Creek, in my opinion, is the best way to begin.  If it is possible to weather the storms and winds of Sheep Creek, any other outdoor adventure will be a breeze in the following warmer months!

Weekly Review: More Camping Photos, Roses and Dogs

This week I have enjoyed:

+ my roses blooming!  

+ a Mother’s Day Brunch at Juniper with the in-laws    

+ lazy camping mornings; how is it that I sleep sounder and longer on a foam pad while camping than I ever do at home?   

+ talking camping tips and tricks over at Trois Chic; I hardly feel qualified but I have learned a few tips in our adventures! 

+ babysitting Max’s girlfriend Abby- they play so good together!  Although I think he was uneasy in this picture since he had to share his spot on the couch!    

+ hobo dinners while camping- I tried a new one that I saw in Sunset magazine, an Italian Hobo Dinner 

Have a good weekend!

Duck Valley Fishing Trip

This weekend we took a quick trip to the Duck Valley Reservation to do some trout fishing.  It’s always an adventure there, as you never know what type of weather you will get!  It’s a safe bet to assume you will get at least one torrential downpour at some point in time during the trip, even if it is for just a short moment.  And the WIND!  Oh my goodness.  But the fishing is real good, and that is why we go!  When the wind was too much for me to handle, I curled up in the back of the Jeep on our bed with a book- it was so relaxing.  Take me back, please!
