Here is the new tent. We had a small four man tent and I just bought this one which is a 7 man tent.
I We didn't realize that it would be so hard to
find a tent site. We ended up in a place I used to dirt bike ride. Now they don't dirt bike ride there any more and the only place we could pitch the tent was a walk in site. It was a bit much. However the nice wood guy let us use his wheel barral.
This tent was a bugger to put up. We did a trial run at the house. The only thing that really is a pain is the fact that the ground was sooooo soft that the tent stakes did not stay in.
we went hiking the next morning. We walked along this trail and my son looks down and says "hey I can see tad poles the water is so clean!"
So I took a picture of the spot where the tad poles could be seen.
The really funny thing is my daughter is the one who had the binoculars.
This is a shot of a water fall that we saw crossing a bridge
This is the first time we took the dog camping.
I did not realize she loved rivers so much. She kept wanting
to cross. I was worried that she would try it and get caught in the current.
this is called the Wilson river. It is a source of many,many good times at least for me. There are so many fond and wonderful memories associated with this place.
And we hiked and we hiked. I love the mountain ash trees.
We did more but I will show you tomorrow. I am tired now. all that hiking you know.
