Back from the 4th

Over the 4th of July weekend, we went on a camping trip next to the Delta River a couple of miles north of what used to be the Black Rapids lodge. I haven't spent much time in the area for quite a while. Years ago, I went on several hiking trips in the area including a couple of summer trips up the Casner glacier. Beautiful area. I rode my bike a little, some went up Donnelly Dome and I did get in some walking. It was miserably warm with temperatures in the mid-80s and the bugs were out in force. There was a dike along the Delta River that ran for a couple of miles and it was a nice place to walk. There was a nice breeze along the river which made for a very pleasant walk in spite of the temperatures. I didn't have my phone with me so no pictures. Maybe I should start carrying a better camera than just the camera phone. The pictures just aren't very good.

On Saturday, we went down to some lakes about 5 miles south of Rainbow ridge but we got hailed on so we went back to the campground. It was a great camping trip with a wonderful group from church and everyone seemed to have fun. I really enjoyed getting outside...
