Camping at Yellowpine

After the craziness of UBIC and the Fair, we decided the perfect way to relax was to go camping. We've already been twice this summer and hope to go at least two more times. 

Thursday afternoon, we were both given the opportunity to work over time on Friday. But we both decided we would rather go camping and told our employers no thank you.  By the time we got backed and headed up the mountain, the sun was quickly setting. 

 The original plan had been to go to the same spot we were at the last time, at the Rock Creek Dam campsite. Josh had to stop and get a few things, so I went ahead of him. When I got there, someone was already in our favorite spot. I looked at the other spots, but didn't love any of them; so I drove back down to the Yellowpine campground. 

The last time we were there, the campground was pretty full. We did end up in a spot we didn't mind, but this time it was pretty empty, so I stopped and looked at several. The one I choose ended up being our new favorite spot, between both of the campgrounds. The table sits back off the road a bit and the tent spot was shady.
Josh always wants to try using the dutch oven, so I had found a few new recipes to try. The first night we had Dutch Oven Enchilada Casserole.

In the past, we've usually gone fishing for part of the time. But this weekend, we just wanted to sit around and be lazy. We even moved Sage closer to us so she could relax with us. (She can't be trusted around the table when food it out.)

The second night we cooked pizza in the dutch oven. Josh did an all combo type pizza and I made a Hawaiian pizza.

We also decided to try a breakfast in the dutch oven one morning. We made Lemon Blueberry Biscuits.

Hopefully we'll be back up there again in two weeks.
