Jason and I got back from our camping trip on Sunday. It was a lot of fun as always. We typically go once a month for a whole weekend. So you will see more camping pics in the future.
When we go camping there aren't showers but there are bathrooms. We don't sleep in a tent, we sleep in a VW camper van. No, we don't smoke pot. I can't tell you how often people ask us for weed because of the car we drive, or say "peace, dude!" as we drive by. No, we're not hippies. I'm sure you can tell that from the millions of pictures I have posted.
Anyway, I don't feel comfortable sleeping in a tent even though I have dozens of times as a kid, so we sleep in the camper. The sounds of bugs and animals keep me awake. We have tons of bear activity out here as well as other wild life (I don't wanna be bear food!). We have woken up in the middle of the night with a huge group of elk walking through the camp ground and the car was completely surrounded. They are beautiful creatures, but more so from a safe distance in my opinion. :-) They are aggressive and they will trample you if you get too close.
I'm going to rant for a moment. I have had a lot people (guys and girls) give me total crap for wearing makeup when I go camping. Who in the world said wearing makeup camping, hiking or doing whatever outdoorsy stuff was bad? It's not like I'm wearing drag makeup, just simple makeup. My makeup that I take camping has much needed sunscreen in it. Face powder, lipstick and eyeshadow all have spf. So seriously, quit giving me crap. You should give crap to the men and women who stink of perfume and cologne that draw horrible bugs our way! Or complain about the people that go camping and blast terrible music and sports. Those people annoy me! So anyway. I wore Physicians Formula Healthy Wear SPF 50 powder in translucent light, Urban Decay 24/7 liner in stash and filled in my 'brows. That's it though.
Anyway, here are the pics. Hope you enjoy.
This is our set up. Pop top camper, sleeps four people has fridge, stove and sink. One of Jason's many motorcycles gets us around without having to take everything down from the van.

We went on a 6.8 mile hike up to Fern Lake. There were pretty wild flowers everywhere along the way.

I can't remember what this is called but we call it rootbeer falls because that's what it looks like to us. Although not very much in the pictures.

Why do I look pissed?!
I don't look pissed here. :-D
Once we got higher in the trails, we started seeing snow and it was getting much cooler.
After a couple hours of booty blasting hiking, we finally made it to Fern Lake!
It was so gorgeous up there!
Me eating a granola bar and holding onto my hat for dear life. It was very windy there and my hat would blow away if I didn't hold onto it.

That cloud looked really fake to us.

Jason taking a picture of us and I was like, "what is he doing?"
Me and Jason
He took so many picture where I either look like an idiot or look like I'm posing...
There was a nice mist from the waterfall. Was cold and refreshing!
Jason wanted a burger for dinner.

Looks like zombies could come running from over there at any moment!
