Last weekend we headed to the mountains for a couple of nights of nature time with friends. The scenery was stunning, the company was superb, and the rain, when it came, was spectacular and seemingly never-ending. Though the trip was a lot wetter than expected, it was as relaxing, invigorating, and pleasant a camping experience as ever there was. There was time for napping, reading, card playing, exploring, fly-fishing, snacking, and thoughtful and funny conversation. Backpacking success!
