Fun in the Mountains...

So, I promised I would get these pictures posted of our camping trip.
So, here you go!  Enjoy!

We all had a blast and we have lots of stories to tell.
I didn't take any pictures of our "Follow the Leader" hike, 
because I don't think the camera would have made it out alive!
Ha! Ha!

There were several deer right next to our camp
 and we were lucky enough to set and watch them graze each night.
Such amazing animals they are!

I took lots of pictures of the wildflowers!
I was trying out new settings on my camera.

I love this one, it's such a vibrant yellow!
It shouts Joy!
Isn't God's landscape just beautiful?!

My oldest son is trying his hand at gold panning.
He didn't strike it rich,
 but he found some really pretty rocks!

My middle son showing off the rock he climbed.
On one of the rock hikes, he slipped off and his 
big brother caught him with one hand before 
falling several feet down the mountain. 
Whew... that was intense for the moment!

 Thank God for big strong brothers!
And quick answered prayers!

My hubby, trying to catch some stream fish.
No luck... all the fish just disappeared!
Imagine that... Hee Hee!

And here's my youngest son showing off his rock climbing abilities.
He got smart and asked if he could tie a rope to the top
and use that as a safety guide to help him down!
He gets that from his mama! :)

And, that is our little mini vacation to the mountains.
And, still praising God for no BEARS!

I hope you enjoyed your visit
Come again....soon!

Blessings and Hugs,

I just love seeing all of your pictures Amy. They are so refreshing. What memories they are recording for you. One of these days you will look back and be so happy you have a record of those moments, (written and pictures)… along with your funny stories. Tell Clayton I think I got a little gold fever in Alaska haha. I didn't think I would ever be tempted to want to pan for gold, but it was fun once we gave it a little try.

Thanks for the comments on my blog. It is always such treat to hear from you. This year we are planting our garden in raised beds that Steve made; he is working on screened enclosures for them. The grasshoppers have pretty much wiped out everything that is green outside. So I understand if you didn't plant anything yet. Our neighbor Dale has planted twice and lost everything. I am hoping these beds will work. Thanks for sharing your camping trip.
Love and Blessings

Looks like you had great fun with your family, my friend. Getting away in the mountains and enjoying God's creation is so relaxing, isn't it :)

Have a wonderful week and a Happy 4th of July!

Hello my sweet friend! It has been wayyyyy too long since I have visited! I am up and running once again with my computer. I feel like a new women :) Your pictures are breathtaking Amy! Your mountaineering has always inspired me. Benjamin and his brother took Winston and his cousins on a one night camping trip. It was their first time ever. It was a huge hit! We just need to hang out with you guys and learn some tips and tricks :) So refreshing to visit your blog once again my friend…..

I love you!
