Camplandia

Steve says this camping trip marks the end of us “just visiting.” We live here now.

First off, cousins Violet and Clea stopped here in Huntsville and took an interest in the horses.

We took the scenic route to Dinosaur National Monument, stopping at a campground near Flaming Gorge. Here are most of us.

Mike slept on his recently bought cot, part of his new lifestyle, and reported that it got very, very cold.

Riding in the truck was one of the best parts.

I’ll be honest with you, we didn’t see a lot of dinosaurs.

And we were only gone two nights. We left Violet and Clea and Company on Tuesday and returned to civilization and watched “Finding Dory” and got our countertops updated while our California cousins dug deeper into camplandia.

BUT George caught a fish. George sort of caught a fish.

More horses when we all reunified on Saturday.

It wasn’t until I looked closely at my pictures that I realized my friends felt I was taking a few too many.

Love you folks!
