Oh My Ohanapecosh

This past weekend John and I braved 3 days and 2 nights of camping on the Ohanapecosh River with the kids and our friends Danielle and James (well, they are the brave ones for agreeing to come with us). We packed enough to move to tent city and live comfortably for several months, so I guess it was a good experiment during a bad economy. But forgiving the very full truck, two-room tent and all, we did have a really good time.











If anyone is looking for a needed time warp on their next camping trip, come to Ohanapecosh. This is the Ohanapecosh camp song, sung by Ranger Smith who has been at this National Park for 34 years. Every night at 8:30 there is a park-wide camp fire with slides of years past and camp songs. Makes you want to stand up and say, "no one puts baby in a corner".

Liz - you guys are amazing. Great photos of the kids and your camp. I remember what an absolutely gorgeous spot this is. Looks so fun. The park ranger camp songs were cool. Lucy and Henry look like they just had a blast!!

Grandma Freeman would (will) be so proud of you guys.

Seriously, if you guys plan on going again we want to come! I think the bath in the storage tub is brilliant!
