Camping at San Gorgonio

Camping_Aug2011_ 084Usually we camp at Barton Flats each summer for one or two days with Grandma and Grandpa Marcroft and Great Grandma Marcroft each summer but because the state closed many of the state parks  a lot of the national campgrounds are all full. We were lucky that Grandma and Grandpa found one open spot at the next campground up the road, San Gorgonio. It was a beautiful campground like Barton Flats but I think that I liked it even more because it had more trees and so it was more shady (even though our location was a little further from the restrooms than I would have liked with little boys with little bladders—note, find spot closer to restrooms when possible).

The boys would have loved to stay more than just one night but Thad and his boy scouts are leaving at 6 am on Monday to backpack in the Sierras and we still had a few things to purchase, food to separate, boy’s packs to check and all before the Sabbath hit so we kept our visit to about 24 hours!

Here are a few pictures from our adventures!

The boys helped shuck the corn for dinner…their excitement might have been that we allowed them to throw the husks into the fire pit so that they could watch them burn later…either way, they were happy to help!

Grandpa made hot chocolate for the boys in the morning! Yum!

Great Grandma Marcroft made it up to camp just before we had to leave but we stayed about 15-20 minutes to see her!

And I try to get a picture of Thad and I from time to time…just to prove that we were both there! :)

  By the time we left it was past Danny’s nap time and he was asleep before we finished driving out of the campground, Nate fell asleep on the way down the mountain and Sammy at the bottom of the mountain after taking one bite out of his lunch.
