Camping Season

One of our favorite things to do is camping. Living in Arkansas, we were sort of perma-camping, but here in Utah, we have a lot more places to go. So far this year we've gone a couple of times.
The first time we went up American Fork Canyon and luckily found a great spot. We took the dog, and planned to be there for a couple of days, but it was so cold at night, we didn't stay the second night. He was so cold he was shivering. Hubby let him share his air mattress, and used his bed as a blanket, since I had the only two extra blankets. Other than that it was nice to be out in nature. We found great spot right by a creek, so there was a nice breeze and the humidity was higher and made it nicer. Here are some pictures:Here is our campsite. It had just enough room for our tent.Here is the path to the car and to the restroom (which is a must for me).
This is the creek by our site. It was pretty full and moving pretty quickly.Here is what the dog had to keep him entertained. You can also see a Hubby leg and a doggie leg. The 65lb dog loves to sit in Hubby's lap.
The second camping trip was over the 4th of July weekend. We went with some friends, their 2 six-year-old boys, their RV and 4-wheeler, to an RV Park in Manti. It was nice to catch up with them, but it was noisy. We were right by the entrance to the Park, and so the dog barked at everyone (cars, truck, ATV, and people) that went by. We ended up going home early to get a day of normal rest at home.
Hopefully there will be more camping this year.
