Red Rock Canyon - day trip

Well, we have been talking about going on another weekend trip for a while and with the weatherdock reporting that we should have clear skies this weekend we decided to head out after work and take a quick trip! Denise loaded everything up while I was at work and when I got home it was just a matter of pulling out the hitch, raising the trailer, backing the truck to the trailer, lowering the trailer, raising the trailer again because we were off, moving the truck again, lowering the trailer, connecting the hitch, raising the trailer, putting on the weight distribution bars, lowering the trailer, putting everything way (whew) and pulling out...

Devin was really into his coloring and as a result all he wanted to do was color on his picture. We did finally get him outside to color and he seemed to have fun with that. Desirae did her normal "dirt" thing though she did get a bit bored with it after a while. We did try to walk around but Devin wasn't really up for it so shortly after we left I came back with him so he could use the bathroom. Denise and Desirae did have a chance to walk around the campground a bit and said hello to a couple of our neighbors.

We did have this little visitor who kept coming into our camp. Desirae would chase her away when she would get close. For the most part there were not too many critters around. I think the weather hasn't heated up enough for all the bugs and snakes and stuff but it is only a matter of time.

We are really glad that we went though. The one consistent thing about camping is that once you get there, even if only for an overnight trip, it is VERY RELAXING! I think that really surprises us both on that!

Nice pictures! Great that Denise will get things ready so you can leave after work. Does sound like a bit of work hitching, lowering, raising and all that. I look forward to a weekend relaxing with you guys. I still have trailers on my mind!:)

I think if we could just work out a trip where you guys just stay in our trailer would be cool. I know that it would get REALLY small - but I still think it would be cool.
