This past weekend Luke & I went camping on the McKenzie River at Olallie Campground. It was also Gracie's first camping trip! We bought our tent over a year ago & I'm ashamed to say that this is the first time that we've actually taken it camping. After this past weekend we definitely wish we would've gone more! Next summer we'll plan better & get some more trips in :)
It's important to point out that I started this fire with only ONE match. It's even more important to point out that I started two more campfires this weekend, again only using ONE match. I'm kinda badass.
We had to pump that red thingy on the right to get water...
The trail winds along the McKenzie River & you almost always have a gorgeous view of the water.
It was pretty much the best hike, ever.
My two favorite photos of the entire trip.
(Note: there is a rainbow in each one.)
Happy Campers :)
Hiking is more fun when it's right by the river.
And everything is at your level...
The second photo is me trying catch the river with a slow shutter speed.
Oregon has some awesome Ranger Stations!
I beat Luke at every game we played. I also accidentally threw my dice in my wine cup instead of the Yahtzee cup. Oops :)
This is what we went to sleep to & woke up to. It was perfect.
