We've been wanting to go camping this summer for while now and we were very excited to go this last weekend! What a beautiful drive it was to get there! Past Newdale and Teton, we took a turn on a gravel road and were surrounded by farmland for as far as the eye could see. But then within a few miles we went from rolling wheat and potato fields to a thick green forest of firs, pines, and aspens seemingly out of nowhere!
We prefer to camp far away from people and civilization and after exploring the maze of winding dirt roads for a bit, we came across this sweet little spot. From the time that we pulled back into the trees and set up camp, we didn't see another person until we packed up and got back on the road. Now that's real camping! I have to say, that romping around the woods in Andrew's truck made us miss our friends Travis and Brittany. Such happy memories!
Our campsite was nestled next to a meadow of the most incredible display of wildflowers I've ever seen.
When we went out exploring the next morning, we found fresh deer beds in the meadow where entire families spent the night in the long grasses.
