Well, We Did Go Camping...

And then S woke up the day were were going to leave and he was FINE.  He's pulled this trick a couple times so he MUST have allergies, but I can't tell the difference until he's over it.  We debated a bit, but after phoning the ranger in Yellowstone and finding out that there was snow on the ground and more to come we still opted for Plan B.  But then our friends called with Plan C and we jumped on it.  Camping with two other families with kids (yay!) and dirtbikes (yay!) out in the middle of beautiful nowhere Colorado.  I'm talking pee-in-the-woods-nowhere.  

It's not the Grand Tetons, but it's Mount Princeton in the Collegiate Range near Buena Vista, CO.  We actually had a beautiful campsite with a stream running nearby, a zero-depth sandy entry shoreline, and rocks and a thirsty Cottonwood to climb on.   It was windy and warm.  Sunburns and drama happened (random Jeep crash in our campsite on night number 1, lost child, vomiting, dead van battery).  But we were so glad to have begun our summer with friends and freedom.  Thanks for the invite, Noy and Dawn!
