I must be honest, I’ve never considered myself an “outdoors” kinda girl.
I grew up around manicured gated communities and the aquamarine colored swimming pools of Palm Springs, California.
So after about three days of camping, I’m usually past expiration. The combination of dirt, sweat and Deet has me clamoring for a shower.
But once I checked myself before I wrecked myself, I surrendered to the beauty and solitude of the forest.
Our annual family camping trip took us to Highland Lakes after reading Kevin Gong’s epic hiking blog. Kevin is amazing. Dude’s got serious stamina and hiking insight.
When I go camping, I get all fired up for the gear. It will be my home-away-from-home and I need to like what I am looking at. Ah—h just look at those beauties.
