Last Fall Aaron and I decided we wanted to try camping so we bought the stuff for it. Unfortunately the weather turned right after this decision and we didn't get a chance until two weeks ago.

We drove an hour and a half to Beckler River Campground, pulled right up to a little site and set up camp 30 ft from our car and 20yds from the river. It was beautiful! Green everywhere, rushing river right there and sunshine. We set up camp, forgot bug spray and drove to the gas station, a 15 min drive, and bought some.  Perfect for newbie campers, which despite camping often in our youth we both are. (Aaron is apparently VERY allergic to bugs. His bites were quarter-sized in less than a minute)

We read our books in the sun by the river, ate mostly cooked tin foil dinners and played with fire. Bragging moment: we got our fire started with one match on our first try and kept it burning for like 4-5 hours. We rock! When it got pretty dark we also played with Aaron's fancy camera. Here are the pictures. Enjoy!


Note the tin foil dinners inexpertly put in the fire. Good thing we used precooked ham.

Late night camera fun 

Not super interesting arrangement of photos but at least it's posted.

What fun! I love hearing about your adventure and the photos are amazing. I think they are perfect but when you don't, remember Dad's quote. If it is worth doing, it is worth doing a mediocre job and having it done.

So I'm guessing you didn't have to photoshop that green to brighten it. Jealous.

I love the photo fun, especially Ryu
