Cooper Lake

We headed to Copper Lake a few weekends ago for a family camping trip. Somehow we didn't manage to take any pictures in camp, but we did take pictures or our hike.

The weekend was fun, although busy. We managed to squeeze in a hike to the Thorp Mountain Lookout (our friend Betsy is the lookout this year, we brought her a cold beer and a fresh peach!); a few relaxing paddles around Cooper Lake; a refreshing dip in the lake; a delicious hobo dinner with venison, sweet potatoes, carrots and onions, some fire building lessons for my nephew Austin and at least a little time for drinking beer and chatting around the fire!
Camping trips like these don't happen with enough frequency, but when they do I'm always happy that I took the time to play outside and connect with family.
