first weekend of summer

see the rip. r.i.p. tent and mj.

mr husband and I wanted to get away for the official first weekend of summer, so last friday night, we jumped in the car and drove till we found a adventurous of us!

as we setup camp somewhere in frazier park, we had only one minor problem, our luxurious queen size blow up mattress ripped a hole in our tent. how rude. after some minor deflating we slept like two little peas in a pod.

it wasn't until morning light that we realized how beautiful our site was. the misty light was glistening off everything and some morning shooting ensued. it felt so good to wake up and take photos first thing. best saturday ever.

breakfast consisted of whatever we threw in the cooler...raspberries, vanilla bean yogurt and avocado. weird, yes. delicious, yes. if we only knew we could light a fire! next time pyro maniacs for shizzle. I really need to fry an egg on a tin can for grantel.

...after camping, hiking. after hiking, eating at awesome mexican restaurant with homemade horchata. after eating, drive in movie!

best first weekend of summer ever!

(all photos have a redish filter. I'm not usually one for action rama on my photos. I like to be pure, BUT I think this adds a feeling of nostalgia for camping trips of yesteryear, don't you?)
