Hiking (Left to Right): Rudy, Dustin, Brandon, Mike and JD.


Friday afternoon Bob, our friend Rudy and I took off with all 4 doggies and went camping. We took Bob's truck and the 5th wheel camper I posted the picture of last week.

It had rained on Wednesday and Thursday, and predicted to stop Friday. We drove 3 hours west of Colorado Springs to Grouse Mountain at Mueller State Park. We met 4 other friends there; Mike, Brandon, JD and Dustin. After we got set up and seated around Mike and Brandon's fire, it started sleeting. It was a sign of what was to come for the weekend.

Friday night was super cold. We had a nice dinner, and talked around the campfire, but we were all in multiple layers of clothing and blankets.

The trip was nice, but the cold weather continued. The wind was icey on Saturday, and although we got out hiking for a bit, even that did not warm us up. On top of that, we packed SO MUCH food. We crammed our camper full of things. If an apocalypse had come for us, we would have been quite comfortable for a few weeks.

I was really cold on Saturday night, and not feeling great, so I went to bed early. I got up at 6am on Sunday morning, and it was probably warmer out then than it had been around the fire on Saturday night (the wind had died off.) We made french toast for breakfast and had a sucky feeling as we left the campgrounds to the nicest weather we'd seen all weekend.

I'll still go camping again, but maybe not this early in the season, and maybe next time to a spot where there is more to do.
