Hey guys! So I've been away for quite awhile on a vacation of sorts. Since approx. 2002, my family and I have been visiting Colorado to help a family we know run a camp for some kids up there. And we've just returned! Let me just say this...Colorado is not Louisiana. While the temperature was fairly phenomenal, the dryness in the air was nearly unbearable. My lips were cracked, my skin was cracked, my sanity was cracked. I missed my Louisiana humidity with a passion. One night we even had a rainstorm to rival all rain storms, and by the next afternoon the ground was as dry and cracked as ever. Had we been in Louisiana, it would have been a muddy mess for days.

The camp was rather primitive this year in that there was no electricity or plumbing. We had showers fed by generator via two huge water tanks, though the showers were open to the sky. So that was fun. Being without a sink for a week was also an interesting situation. And you just don't realize how much you miss small pleasantries when your greatest desire every day is wanting to wash your feet. The dust there...is was just everywhere. And one's feet were never clean except perhaps while in the shower. But anyway!

I don't want to say all of that to complain, because I greatly enjoyed myself! And the camp was for the kids, who really enjoyed it. So I'll just let the pictures speak for themselves for the most part. Smile

The counselors were so worn out, I made a coffee run to town every morning to save our sanity. I have pictures of that, but I'd rather not show pictures of people. Anyway, had a great time, but so glad to be home. Smile

Cool pics! I like the lightning ones.

I'm probably misreading you but are you saying you haven't been home since 2002. Shocked

I think she means they've gone to the camp once a year, every year since 2002. Wink

Glad you had a good time, Mara!

You know I briefly wondered if it might be read that way? Ha! Well yes, Padme is correct. Since 2002, we've taken one trip a summer (except a couple summers that were skipped) to head over there. Smile

Some pretty impressive country, there! I liked the first one, as it demonstrated best the big lumps in the ground that I like so much, and squeel like a little girl every time I see a big one.

Glad you're back, and hope you had fun!
