We saw beavers, big horned sheep, eagles, osprey, hawks, pelicans, herons, a rattlesnake (could have gone a long time without seeing that one), grizzly bears (in captivity - no worries) and wolves (also in captivity). We didn't get to see any of the three moose that live near the campground, but it just means we'll have to go back!
I did realize something though. It got ever so cold at night, and the sleeping bags just weren't enough (especially considering my kids kept creeping out of them!). I need some camping quilts. Some bright, super scrappy, warm, durable camping quilts. At least three or four of them. So that's my goal this winter.
Okay, but this isn't a travel blog, so I'll stop boring you. Here's what I finished up during the long hours in the van (yes, I know it desperately needs ironing - I'm still wading through a mountain of laundry right now though!):
This is the fifth one, out of twelve. Gotta get more done I guess!
I also finished up that giant hexie flimsy before we left.
And now, this week:
- Bake and submit fair entries (this is mostly today and tomorrow)
- Transfer a new Halloween embroidery
- Baste and start quilting my Gypsy Girl patchwork
