Family Camping

We went camping with Dana's parents and our nephew Drew before volleyball tryouts. Grandpa and Grandma Fuhrmann went up early with the three boys to set up camp and we followed after Dana finished work. They found a nice spot next to the river near Brownlee Reservoir. We cooked tin foil dinners and played by the river. Unfortunately the dutch oven cobbler burned, but there were plenty of cookies for dessert.  The next day we drove north to where the road ends and Hell's Canyon begins.  We explored the visitor's center and boat launch area and fixed a flat tire. Lunch was at a diner in Cambridge which had great hamburgers and fry sauce. On the drive home we saw a black bear! Outside of Yellowstone Park, we couldn't remember ever seeing a bear running around in the wild. We're not big campers (at all) so this was our family's fist actual camping trip together. It was also our last little hurrah before everyone went back to school and work.
