We just returned last night from five days of camping. We had a WONDERFUL time. We went with another family so that just multiplied our enjoyment. We had wonderful times around the campfire at night. We visited a mission, a museum, spent time at the beach, (we went to Lake Roosevelt in North eastern Washington) and went fishing. We ate wonderful meals, saw lots of wild life, took a nap or two and just enjoyed each others company. Here are a few photos of our experience.
Here is our campsite
Here are some wild turkeys that were close to our campsiteA couple of fawns we caught sight of at the museum in Colville, Washington, we also saw a buck and doe close to our campsite and heard them calling to each other during the night
An eagle's nest with parents and babies, we heard them squawking, we also would see many of them flying around looking for food
Hannah, Ralph and Alicia in front of a painting of Kettle Falls (the falls no longer exist because of Grand Coulee Dam)
