Hi everybody! This has been our busiest summer yet. Not only did we go to Virginia, South Carolina and California, but we also just returned from a road trip to Wyoming. We used the eclipse as a reason to get back there - my first time since we moved away six years ago. And boy did it feel good to see those big skies and empty roads.
Our first night we camped at a little reservoir that my husband likes to fish. My photographer friend Leah Yetter came on over from Wheatland and spent the afternoon with us as we fished, caught crayfish, and cooked up some supper. Boy, was it good to see her again!
We tried out our back-of-the-truck camping rig that my husband had built. Sadly, we got rid of the truck camper we used to have, so my husband built a platform in the back of our truck. He covered it with a nice foam mattress topper, and built slide-out drawers underneath. It worked great. We had a nice first night camping, and enjoyed a lazy morning the next day, spent glassing the mountains and watching my daughter put on a concert.
