Over the weekend, we camped on the east side of the Winds near Lander.
It was great fun to explore a new area
and to play in the woods with good friends.
We camped with Paul and his boys in a most perfect spot
(after the wind and dust drove us out of our first pick).
Unfortunately, Becca didn't get to join us since she
is out on a fire assignment.
These boys played SO hard all weekend and had a blast.
It's amazing how much fun can be had on one little plot of ground
in the woods.
There was a lot of bike riding.
The littlest one getting in on the action.
Loooots of effort, little progress.
There was rock hopping.
There was some (very little) chilling.
And there were rope acrobatics.
Don't worry, Becca.
It was totally safe.
better let the baby have his turn.
Serious appetites were worked up.
Oh, look. It's me!
Our camper window was the one casualty of the trip.
We were travelin' classy.

Back to the rope.
This time it was a team effort.
Arlo is up!
We ended Sunday with a drive down out of the mountains through Sinks Canyon
and into the town of Lander. There we watched the kids play at the city park
and then ate dinner at the local pizza joint.
After that, we said goodbye to the Swensons as they headed back to Pinedale.
Our foursome drove south out of Lander into the Red Canyon.
We were treated to a beautiful drive through the canyon at dusk before finding
a camp spot perched on a hill overlooking the land we had just covered.
When the drive home takes you by this establishment (Farson's only),
how can you not stop, even if it is 10:30 in the morning?
Such a fun weekend!
