Camping again - Smiles this time.

We have returned from camping again in the beautiful CO mountains. This time we were with our daughter and son-in-law and it was great spending some quality time with them.
Our awning that blew off on the last trip was fixed and ready to shade us from the CO sun.
We are ready for a hike, hats on and extra jacket for any rain sprinkles that might come up.

This little mountain lake is nestled near one of the hiking trails.
At one high point, you felt like you could see forever and forever!!
We counted about 20 different varieties of wild flowers on our trip. Because we've had a lot of rain, they are in abundance and dot the countryside with their pristine beauty.
Evenings were spent at the campfire, cooking our meals and roasting marshmallows. Later we enjoyed playing games in our RV.
There is nothing like the sunsets in the mountains, with the gentle breezes and sounds of the wild in the distance. Such beauty the Lord has created for us to enjoy!
Our last night up there, it rained hard but there was a beautiful double rainbow at the same time! Reminding us of the Lord's promise to us and His faithfulness at all times.

I have not been camping since I was a child. Every time I visit you I am ready to go buy a tent. I did go to Charleston SC; however I stayed in a cozy hotel. Thank you Ruthie for sharing. It looks like God has blessed you.
In His Hands,
Bren
