Camping and Campfires with the Collyges

Last weekend we loaded up the camping gear and went to Petit Jean for some much needed relaxation with our good buddies, Dustin and Carly. Since our friendship is long distance now (sniffle, sniffle), we were looking forward to catching up. We all took off on Friday and got an early start to the weekend.

This view could never get old

We stayed under complete control our first night . . .

On Saturday, we hiked a few of the trails and took in some of the beautiful Petit Jean scenery.

At the end of our first trail, we discovered Cedar Falls. Last time we came, the waterfall was falling heavily, but this time it was running in comparison to our kitchen sink faucet. Can you find it?

I bought Harley a hoodie to keep warm in the chilly weather. Here are some candids I shot of him and his cuteness. :)

On the second night, we were a little more reserved and relaxed. I didn't even take the camera out of the case. The night ended with a successful win against the Gamecocks and even after we ate pork for dinner. I became very superstitious about eating our mascot on the night of a big game. 

I think the people next to us, however, had an opposite of quiet and lacking respect of your camping neighbors time. They busted out the guitar singing some Jewel and Goo Goo Dolls at MIDNIGHT!! The musicians were lucky they were amazing.

We hated to leave our buddies on Sunday, but we look forward to the next time we can be 
together again!!
