Weekend Camping

We spent last weekend camping at a wonderful place called Dinkey Creek. It was our last chance for any kind of Family Vacation before school starts and we had a great time!

The campground was full, but because it is huge, it didn't seem crowded at all. It is probably the best cared for campground we've ever been too. They even rake the campsites after campers check out! (Yes, I did take a picture of our pristine campsite, but it didn't turn out very well.)

A view of Dinkey Creek. (Named for a dog who fought a Grizzly Bear.)

Nathan exploring the rocky water's edge.

Posing for the camera.

Hubby and Nathan fishing.

(Thank goodness they didn't catch any. I was not prepared to clean fish!.)

Neccessity is the mother of invention......I brought a bottle of wine, but forgot the corkscrew!

Victory! Cork removed using a paint can opener thingy and a hammer. MacGyver's got nothin' on my Hubby!

On our way home, we stopped here to see some big cats.

Goliath, a Bengal Tiger, relaxing by his pond.

And finally, a stop in Sequoia National Park to see the giant Sequoia's. That's General Sherman, the biggest tree in the world, in the background. (With Nathan looking a little bored. Really, how many BIG trees does a six year old want to see?)
