Indulge Shutter-Happy Me

Wow. Our camping trip was awesome. Eight days of sleeping under the stars, eating tasty meals cooked over a campfire (we love our new cast iron dutch oven), enjoying scenic hikes, dipping in the bluest of blue waters, and an making an unplanned detour to a cool old town with an amazing cemetery. I took a ree-diculous number of photos, and for my own satisfaction and need to catalog everything, I'm going to post lots of 'em here. It's for my own sake, so feel free to skip over the next seven days of posts if you can't stand other people's vacation slide shows.

For those of you who are curious about the camping locations that will soon follow...
Ever been to Lassen Volcanic National Park (you know by now what a sucker I am for the National Park System)? It has lots of varied, truly spectacular geographic features and is far less crowded than many national parks. I highly recommend a visit. Ever been to Lake Tahoe? I can now say that I have, and that I don't need to go back. It's as gorgeous as everyone says it is, but it's not my scene. Ever been to Virginia City, Nevada? If you've got a thing for old cemeteries and can overlook a town that does a bit of catering to tourists, add it to your list of must-sees. Now brace yourself, or tune out.

At one point it hit me that part of blog world is looking at other people's vacation photos, but at least there is not a Kodak carousel involved.

Yes, I have been to Tahoe, but it was 21 years ago. I understand it has changed A-LOT.

8 days!?!?! WOW!
