Hey hey! If you’ve noticed I’ve been absent for a little while from the blog universe (and in general)…I’ve been camping!
The Fuzzy Face and I went for our second camping trip, this time to southern Wyoming.
We stayed at the Curt Gowdy State Park, about halfway between Laramie and Cheyenne and very close to a small section of the Medicine Bow National Forest. A local informed us that Curt Gowdy wasn’t a real wilderness experience…but I thought it was beautiful. And I like having a place to take a shower. We set up our tent near one of three reservoirs in the park.
The second day we drove up into the mountains west of Laramie. We got out of the car for a short walk around Mirror Lake, but there were still several feet of snow in places, and it was cold! I piled on every jacket I had, and the Fuzzy Face lent me his wool socks. We were so high in elevation that the clouds covered the mountain peaks!
One night we went to a bar and grill in a little town up the road. It was a very Wyoming experience–the Fuzzy Face got a great big steak, and I went for chicken and mashed potatoes. The salad course especially hit the spot. And, of course, each evening we had a beautiful campfire after a beautiful sunset. I also made these gluten-free graham crackers (with maple syrup subbed in for the honey) so that we could have s’mores. The graham crackers were delicious, although I have to admit, no matter how good the graham crackers and chocolate, I’ve always liked plain ole roasted marshmallows best!
Linking up with Meg to share my camping adventures for a little Week in Review.
