another camping trip

 Memorial Day weekend is my family's annual camping trip to Canyon Point. This trip was really short due to the relentless wind that destroyed my parent's tent. It was depressing. But for the one day I was there, we tried to enjoy as much of the cold, mountain air as possible.
 The only pictures I got were from the hike we went on to see the sinkhole...on our way we stumbled across this little pond! You wouldn't have even known it was there unless you practically walked into it! It was covered on one side by a hill, and if you're looking for it from far away, it blends into the forest...

And, yes, the water was REALLY that green.


I was trying to get Lucy the puppy to come into the water...
 ...and it didn't really work out...

Here us pretty ladies are, no make-up, no hair done...

A view from inside the sinkhole, looking up. Ben is somewhere at the top there...

Sadly, even though it was a short trip, it wasn't all that much fun...the wind was so cold, and it made it impossible to enjoy anything. We couldn't play games or take a quiet nap (the tent was SO LOUD from the wind hitting it)...we were constantly have to tie something down or run to pick something up that had flown away. Sigh. Maybe next year will be better!!

That is a bummer. Hopefully you got to do something fun when you came home?
