06/09/15 — Pike National Forest

I don’t have an event for almost another week, but it’s been getting warmer and warmer down on the plains, and my favourite method of dealing with that is to drive uphill. So starts this summer’s trip — or rather, trips, as I’ll have to stop back to make more stuff, but yeah, I’ll be spending a LOT of this summer on the road.

This looks a lot better:

A whole lot better.

I found us a nice little spot in the woods…with 4G.

The boys settled in fine (and yes, stole my comfy chair every chance they had).

Mostly we just hung around the van and got stuff done (as this isn’t a vacation — I’m still working!) but it’s a lot easier to get out for a little walk, and Loiosh and I took one a few days in.

We found deer poop!

And…something else poop! (Looks like cow — maybe moose? I dunno?)

This spiral in the moss just made me ridiculously happy:

Neat tiny things!

We didn’t honestly go very far, but there’s just so much to see.

This path is also an intermittent stream, and yes, I got my feet wet.

Loiosh is always so happy to get out in the woods.

Neat stuff.

Why am I taking a picture of a drainage pipe, you ask?

Chocolate stuck much closer to the van…

…but even he got in a little exploring.
