Independence Day Campout

All of our Pima friends decided to go up to Don and Robin's cabin on Mt. Graham for the weekend. It was a lot fun! Most of the couples arrived Thursday evening. We arrived Friday evening, right after it finished raining up there. We set up camp and hung out. That night it rained most of the night and it seemed no one slept well. Saturday the boys went fishing, and Paul caught 3 fish! Sorry I forgot to take a picture of that. We hung out most of the day and then had a pot luck dinner with all of the other cabins. It started raining pretty hard and lightning pretty loud. Paul and I just grabbed our food and headed back to the cabin. On our way back lightning struck this tree...


See where the bark is missing? Yeah it landed right in front of us. We couldn't have been more than 20 or 30 feet away from this tree when it happened. It was scary and really loud! We slept well that night and most everyone else seemed to also. Sunday morning everyone started packing before church and then everyone ran over to a near by cabin and this is what we saw...


That black fuzz by Beckie's head in the middle of the picture... it was a bear.










That's about it. It was my first time staying the night in a tent (that wasn't in my backyard) and I'd have to say I'd do it again!
