Girls' Weekend In The Mountains
My mom, sister and I are very close, and love to spend time in the mountains together. We recently went on a girls' (and dogs) camping trip.
My sister has a 90 pound golden-doodle named Roots, who thinks he's a lap dog, and I have a min pin (Dorothy) who is very jealous.
They formed a dog pile on top of me on the way up.
Once we got up to our site, we set up the necessities for a girls camping trip.
yarn and needles
bear mace (for bears and men)
and Mary Jane's Farm Outpost (book)
This is my adorable mom in the background.Now here are a couple of things I have to have and do to make an amazing girls camping trip:
Relaxing in a comfy hammock
A nice view of the trees.
Sleepy puppy to cuddle with.
A dog to protect your campsite with his best friend, the Zebra.
He will even protect you without the zebra. :)
A nice walk to view the wildflowers.
This is stinging nettle. Don't touch or rub against this...although I do hear it's great in homemade pesto, but am not sure how to make it without the stinging. :)
Amazing homemade dutch-oven cooking.
Ashley (my sister) made homemade cheese enchiladas.
They were amazing, and I used the blueberry salsa on the side. :)
A nice sister to clean up dinner after making it. :)
The next morning, I had to craft while up in the mountains,
and hug a tree. Some may call me a tree-hugger. :)
This is my favorite breakfast (Musili soaked in milk) in my favorite tin camping bowl.
We then packed up and came back home. It was a short trip, but a much-needed girls' camping trip. It's always so nice to get away for the night to sleep under the stars in the wild mountains.
