I haven’t camped for a long time, so when the opportunity arose and my husband and I had a free weekend, we pulled out the camping gear, shook off the spider webs and headed for Turquoise Lake near Leadville, Colorado.
This shot was taken when we camped on a regular basis, back when my kids were blonde!
Our Bichon, Roxy, has never gone camping. With constant leashing, sleeping in a tent, and weather, I wondered if she would like it. There was only one way to find out.
And how long would her coat stay white? About one minute.
I’ve been backpacking, but this was Cadillac camping or a variety of glamping. Okay, that’s a stretch, but instead of parking at a trailhead and carrying everything to survive an overnighter and lots of hiking, we parked right at the campsite. A water tap was located right across the road from us. So much easier!
We set up camp, took a hike, and made a discovery. You’ll find out in the video.
As darkness fell, so did the temperature. We hustled to start a fire and dinner.
But as clouds gathered in the distance, time ran out… Oh, nooooooo!!!!
Watch the video below to find out what happened…
Hope you enjoyed your virtual camp out! Were you surprised by Roxy’s reaction?
