Camping Trip!

Colby & I decided to take a quick camping trip! Colby took work off on Tuesday and we headed up Monday afternoon to a place called Crown Point, about a 3 hour drive. The last 30+ miles are on dirt roads climbing up a mountain to 6500+ feet! It was a little crazy and Im glad that we drove it during the day and not the night!
There was plenty of wildlife on the drive up...

There were cows just roaming the dirt roads on the way up! They definitely caught us off guard a couple of times! 
But other than some birds, and an occasional squirrel we were the only ones at or around our campsite!
Before we set up camp Colby decided to cast out a couple of times and try out his fishing pants..
You might notice that its seems that Colby has changed his allegiance to Carolina to the Sundevils.. no worries. Kazzi just ate his favorite Carolina hat (bad dog) we found the same exact hat at marshalls, the only difference, it was Sundevils instead of Tarheels!

We were only at the lake maybe a total of 10 minutes because we could hear the thunder and wanted to set up our tent before the storm came in. We were able to get set up and start a fire just in time for it to start pouring down rain! Luckily there was a little shelter for us to sit in on our campsite!

After the rain was over we had to restart our fire. A couple wet branches and lots of gasoline later we had a nice fire to cook our delicious tin foil dinners in, and of course roast marshmallows!
We headed to bed and had planned to go hiking in the morning, but it was raining again and we decided to just start heading back! It of course decided to stop raining so we stopped at a couple places a long the way to tkae pictures and walk/climb around!

 There was a wildfire a couple years ago that destroyed most of the forest. Alot of the trees ended up looking like this. Pretty cool!

Mountains for miles and miles! You can see one of the roads in this pictures, looks like the one that we had to take to get up there!!
We had a great time and cant wait to go camping again! The weather was a perfect 75 degrees and not to cold at night!!
The weather is finally becoming bearable here! It was 90* today! So much better than 110+!!
