Last weekend you might have seen that I took over the Sailor Jerry Instagram and shared photos from our three day camping adventure, but now you get the details!
We packed up the car Friday afternoon which left a small 3 foot by 3 foot area in the back for me to squeeze into. I lost feeling to my lower half about 10 minutes in and after a 3 hour drive, we finally arrived at the campsite at Blue River Lake!
Our friend had stumbled across the spot about a month before and had saved the GPS coordinates so we could find this gem of a camping spot again. It was right on the bank of a creek, which we had fun exploring all weekend and it made for the perfect white noise at night when we went to sleep. We had the entire area to ourselves and spent most of our time cooking and having drinks around the campfire.
We went down to the lake on our second day to go for a swim in the beautiful green-blue water which was much needed to wash off all the camping grime!
The last day there we were all feeling a little rough and definitely yearning for a good night’s rest in a REAL bed and being able to use a REAL toilet! Haha we packed up, cleaned up our campsite, and hit the road again to Portland.
Of course I whipped up some delicious campfire recipes that you’ll see very soon and we’re already plotting our next camping excursion for the beginning of October.
Anyone else doing some end of summer/fall camping? What’s your favorite campfire recipe?
