I took Charlie and drove up to Clark’s Fork today for a “day” camping trip.  We met up with some friends that were overnight camping there and spent the day relaxing and playing in the river.  What a beautiful drive through the mountains to get to this scenic, remote camping area.  It really was beautiful.  Unfortunately, with our lifestyle and schedules, I don’t see any camping trips in my near future so I’m really going to appreciate this brief encounter.

I had forgotten how much fun it is to camp.  I know it’s a lot of work… but it is so worth it for the rest and relaxation that comes from getting away from it all.  You don’t have to worry about schedules, electronics or even what the time is.  Just enjoying friends, family and the great outdoors.
