Another Camping Trip

We've been camping a lot this summer thanks to the purchase of a new-to-us toy hauler in May. I am now spoiled and will never go back to tent camping!

A couple weeks ago we went camping up the North Fork of the Clearwater River, South of Avery, ID.  It's gorgeous there and one of our favorite places in Idaho to go camping. We found a beautiful spot along the river.

The whole crew came along; us, the kids, my mom, our dogs, and my mom's kitten, Sophie. There was lots to do.

Relax

Or try to anyway.

Some know better and find more private locations to relax.

Practice target shooting.

Go four-wheeling.

Or try to. Sometimes a fallen tree gets in the way and you have to wait for the big guy to saw through it.

And others take picture of the water.

At the end of the day there's always the time spent by the campfire.

I'm so jealous!! I have always wanted to go camping. Maybe once Lo is 5 and I'm able to save up some money I'll do just that!

Love the pictures, as always. And how did you get the water to look like that? What settings?
