First Camping Trip

Wednesday, April 18, 2012

Last weekend we had some crazy weather here in Boulder. It was raining and stormy and cold, something we haven't experienced in months. So of course, my friends and I decided to go camping! Now let me tell you, I have never been truly camping before- the closest I've ever gotten was sleeping in a tent next to a house. So I was very excited for my frist real camping. 

When we got to the campsite, it was just getting dark so we set up as quickly as we could. The snow was falling pretty heavily at this point and it was certainly not warm. We spent the evening eating, playing games, and telling stories in the tent. When we woke up, we were seeing the sun rise over a beautiful snow covered valley. All in all, I would say I had a pretty awesome first camping experience despite the snow and the cold in April.
