Ralphs Family Camp Out At Boulder Mountains, June 2014

Let me just say, Jesse and Natalie picked the perfect spot for our family camp out this year.  They reserved a cute little ranger station at the base of Boulder Mountain.  It had a great kitchen and small bedroom where their family stayed.  Darren and our boys camped in a tent outside, and me, Eva, Grandma and Grandpa, and Jeanette and her boys stayed at Rock Creek Inn in Loa, about 25 min from the cabin.

There was a fence surrounding the near area to keep the cows out and it served to keep the boys within yelling distance.  There were a few very small streams through the area and alot of trees and bushes.  The boys disappeared for hours and built forts and played games and whatever else boys do in the forest.

We also did a little fishing and took some scenic drives to several pretty lakes.  It poured back at home two of the days we were gone, but it only sprinkled lightly one night and the rest of the time it was cool and breezy (ok, maybe blustery).  We had a great time!

Eva laid here for a very long time, just happy to be there.

Each boy got to build their own little fire each night, before Jesse pushed them together to make one big fire.

This was Noah's first time fishing.  And he LOVED it!

This is my favorite picture of the whole trip.  I laugh every time I look at it!

Lunch on Boulder Top - very windy!

All the men consulting the map to see how much further to go.

It's not a family campout unless Grandpa cooks breakfast.
