Thanks to everyone who stopped by with their greetings and to wish me a happy weekend. You're all lovely.
So, we went camping this weekend (yes, again). This time we went a State Park called Ledges...near Ames. Brent and I are Iowa State University alums, so this is our old stomping grounds. Naturally, we came up to catch the football, which turned out to be an embarrassing waste - but no matter.
The best part was this park. It was BEAUTIFUL. We had gorgeous weather, yes, but this park is awesome. Bluffs and trails and nature and quiet. Due to an unfortunate, unplanned tumble in an flooded creek, we did not traverse all the trails available, but there are plans to return. Again and again.
Let's see the pictures, shall we?
This first one's the spectacular scenery. Notice the tiny figure in yellow. That's Brent and he is completely dwarfed (to the thousandth power) by the bluffs.
Here's another scenery pic. Bluffs and trails. Trails and bluffs.
This one is definitely going to get made into holiday greeting cards at Walmart this year!
This is Elliot splashing right through the flooded bridge. Soaked jeans but what fun!
Out of the five of us, only Brent and Kirby were the ones to lose their balance and fall in the creek. You can't really tell it on Brent, but Kirbs definitely has that sodden dog-left-in-the-rain look.
