Stanley, Idaho

In July, Paul and I had the opportunity to go up to Stanley Idaho with my parents for a camping trip. We had so much fun and really enjoyed getting to spend some quality time with my parents.

We went hiking, rode the ATVs, glassed mountain goats at 10,000 feet, went to Red Fish Lake, Salmon Fished, toured a ghost town (Custer), and watched the Indians rape and pilage the land. Yes, I know it is 2009 and we have people (mostly which claim to be Indian) taking advantage of our wildlife. Those who know me understand that I am not a "granola" or a "tree hugger" but I get pretty upset when I see people taking advantage of what so many people spend hundreds of thousands of dollars - not to mention time - trying to conserve the future wildlife and game for tomorrow's generations.

Apart from the Indians, it was a great trip! :)

Here is a photo update!

Eating camp food - steak and shrimp! :) Notice the grille in the back too! By the way, that is A-1 on the table in case you were thinking something different. :)

Next up....Hike into our camping spot in Cache Valley to White Pine Lake

Looks like a beautiful spot! I know what you mean, I'm not a tree-hugger either, but wastefulness in any form is just stupid. And it's not just the land they pillage. Even though we all in Oklahoma are pretty much somehow part Indian, my cousins have papers to prove it (unlike myself) so they were able to be approved for free school lunches all through high school, even though both parents were employed. Our tax dollars at work!

Looks like so much fun! (and I'm not even a camper!) it's fun to see what you two are up to, when do you head out to Virginia?

That looks like so much fun! I miss camping! I definitely like the pictures of the water. Mountain streams and the views are such awesome testimonies of God's creativity and goodness!
