It was a quick trip. We left after work on Friday and by the
time we picked everybody up, stopped and let Wendy's
feed us dinner, and drive clear the crap down there,
it was past midnight.
Here are a few tricks of the trade we learned on how
NOT to tick off your camping neighbors...
1. Arrive BEFORE 12:30 AM
2. Turn OFF your car lights while you are setting up your tents
3. Take special care not to hit your car alarm button on your keys.
After an EXTREMELY windy/short night, (for some)
we woke up to a beautiful day.
Here is the Carlson/Steel hotel. It was a very cozy
Canvas Haven and protected all of us against the
winds MUCH better than everybody elses little mesh top tents!
A group of us eating breakfast in the morning.
The Carlson's took such good care of us, we even
had a choice between 3 different cereals and Oatmeal!

Taking a breather...
I told James I wanted a nice picture of us,
so he jumps on me. Ha,I love that boy!
My favorite part of the hike...The Wiggles!!
involved chains to pull you up, Rachel and I sent the
rest of the group on ahead, while we...ah...held the
though...Can't be too picky.
