Knik River

Hoping it isn’t the last camping trip for the year. The weather has been so nice we are still camping.  We are not taking the camper off of the truck yet. I will be gone for a couple of weeks but we are hoping that me may be able to get a couple more trips in before the snow when I get back.  We are having an Indian Summer and really enjoying it.

We loaded up as soon as David and Dusty got home from work and off we went.  Heather, Dan and the babies were meeting us at Knik River.

When we arrived at Knik River we found a place to camp.  I was sitting watching David get the campfire ready to start and noticed all the beautiful colors in the mountains.

We enjoyed watching the planes fly over and could see the bridge that the kids had to cross to get to us.

Camping at Kings River

Imagine waking up to the sound of running water and the birds talking. I love waking up this way. Sitting around a morning fire drinking coffee. This is the life for me.

We have been walking the 4 wheeler trails around our camp. I even crossed creeks with one coming almost to my knees. It was cold and helped my heel feel better. I have taken a few shots but will upload the ones from the camera when we get home.

It is so peaceful here. I really enjoy camping. We have gotten older and sleep in a camper. These old hips don’t do ground sleeping any more. Besides you should see me getting up off the ground when you can’t use your knees. Get that butt up in the a and get off the ground.

As far as the diet goes we are sticking to it pretty good. We might be going over on the beer. But what is camping if not beer around the campfire at night. I am cooking lamb chops over the fire tonight and we are having cauliflower salad too.

Even the Flat Ole Hippies came with us.

Well the twins are bringing Mom and Dad out but they had to go to a wedding first. We are going to start the fire, so I can cook, and I am going to say bye for now. I get to check my list now.
