can you see the black cloud enveloping our site?
well, in case you were wondering,
it's massive swarms of mosquitos.
not like oklahoma/tx swarms,
but like swarms from the movie BIRDS swarms.
it was awful.
but we made the most of it.
we had some all natual lemon bugspray and
our handy citronella candle to ward off bugs.
Shoot at this point i woulda drank DEET.
it wasn't like oh, a bug here bug there,
it was like constant swarms.
damn summit lake.
eww scary bug. so i took a pic.
summit lake = cold
a bit chilly, but mainly long sleeves and
pants for mosquito protection!
we couldn't handle it anymore,
at least we had some beer
smokier from the fire, there were fewer.
like still oklahoma bad, but at this point it was
nice :). this is the classic "mom & david pose".
but mom would take a pic then david, and cut one
of the people out and glue it in. b/c the didnt have a
tripod. they have one now.
eat that Lane and Jess.
i also made this thing sus made.
biscuits/cinnamon/sugar/butter in foil.
even while taking this pic on the side of the road,
they were getting in our car. i pretty much
jumped in as cameron was driving away.
b/c a mosq. landed on me and i was
flinging my arms all over the place.
windows down, and got attacked...
i yelled... GO GO GO and
we sped off :(
cute falls though
just chilling on the dirt road
next dest: strawberry springs
natural hot springs made cute :)
so freaking hot, they say it's 102*
but i think it's like 140*
my pics don't show them very well.
a few were cooler and cold once
they got further away from the falls.
to the right behind us, those rocks
are the hotspring falls.
(but next to our campsite was a PIT BULL...
who's worried about bears when THAT
is next to you???)
I PROMISE PROMISE PROMISE
we made these ALL by ourselves, and cooked
the beef all by ourselves.
but for some reason, cameron pounded it flat,
then wrapped it in foil to cook,
and when it came out, it looked like a bigger
version of each square.
so i just thought the easiest thing to do was to
cut it in smaller squares.
either way, it was tasty!
ALL the time, but this is the best yet.
it is a catapiller dangling from a tread or something.
anyway, it was some darn good entertainment.
we ate our nachos, drank some beer, made some awesome desserts (see below)
played Phase 10, watched the stars
saw 2 shooting stars, went to bed.
we woke up, ate b/f, and headed home to shower!!!!
Apple dessert: cut up a green apple, add cut up
refridgerated biscuits, place butter pats all over,
sprinkle cinnamon and sugar, wrap in foil
cook to side of fire:
end up with an apple pie like item!!
