Great pics! Funny thing, I was born and raised in Utah and didn't realize just how great it was until I moved to California and started really missing the seasons.

Thanks for letting me link up. Have a great time camping!

im so jealous right now!

Paul Greci said...

Patricia A. Timms said...

Roasted marshmallows sound good right about now. I hope you have been able to roast some.

I accidentally burnt the edges of some tortilla chips in the toaster oven last night. The burnt pieces tasted a little like roasted marshmallows. It will have to do.

Julie Musil said...

Now that's an awesome get together! Enjoy your trip...

Shelli (srjohannes) said...

gave you an award today on my blog :)

E.J. Wesley said...

I'm loving the dog in the back of Jenn & Ali's photo ... He's all like, "There are strange folk abroad." Daily Lord of the Rings reference: CHECK

Love Glacier, but don't pet the wolves! They're not nearly as squishy-friendly-cute as they look.
