Arriving late on a Saturday left us with limited options when it came to campsites. We took the best one we could find and set up for what would be our coldest night made a touch warmer by a nice single malt and the chuckles provided by David Sadaris and the wonder of audio books.
The next morning, knowing that many campers would be leaving, we packed up and identified our favorite spot that was just off the lake with no neighbors nearby. The morning fog on the lake, the geese skirting just above the water and the deer trespassing timidly into our camp made for a sweet spot to be sure.
Lounging around camp was certainly part of the plan, but a couple of days worth of exploring were not to be missed. The dogs in particular were anxious to be wild! We strolled down the Narrows, hopping over rocks and jumping over sandy pools. We cruised to the top of Mount Scott and made the obligatory trip to Meers for the famous Meersburger. Sadly, the buffalo herd was nowhere to be seen and aside from a couple of bulls, some longhorn and dozens of prairie dogs the wildlife spotting was thin.
