Highlights of our camping trip

We are back from our camping trip. We had a wonderful time at Warm River. While we were there we fished, 4 wheeled, tubed and ate (a lot!). There are a lot more shots, but I thought I would post the really good ones here. I will have some more shots later from Suzanne's camera, and I will post them when I get them.

Carl caught his first fish on the first day. As you can see, there aren't any real whoppers there! Jacob was the first to catch one, and I will post those photos when I have them.
This ferocious bear attack was captured in the visitors center they have set up at Upper Mesa Falls (about 10 minutes from our campsite). Alex took this picture and I think he did a great job! No fingers or anything!
Here is our Mesa Falls party. Mom stayed at camp because of all the stairs and hiking. WE had a lovely older couple take this for us, and in return we took a shot of them.
This was a sign that was posted in the visitors center. They had a back room full of displays. You could touch furs, look at skulls and dead water bugs (ewwwwwww). I thought this warning was very creative! Here is one of the best shots we were able to get of the falls. They happened to be painting the railings the day we went, so there was a lot of path blocked off, and we couldn't get very close.

On the last night we were at camp, we were visited by a group of skunks. They were at our site when my dad nearly ran one over. Then, they came over to Jim and Suzanne's site and scared us away from our marshmallows. Then, when we thought all was clear, they came up right next to our tent so we had to cower inside for fear of scaring them. My dad left the car unlocked so that if we did get sprayed we could get away from everyone else! ha Thanks Dad!

That's what you call a fish?! Looks like a big worm. Did you at least cook it? :) I love the shot of the waterfall, rainbow and all. Looks like you guys had fun. I miss you! See ya soon!

Hi Senta! Yeah, they were there for a quick minute last week...they talked their other aunt into taking them. Nobody was there, so there was no reason for them to stay. Uhh...besides reading and junk :)
