I stayed at that site on Frasier with the Scouts a few years ago. It was a great campsite!

Sometimes it's really good for the body and soul to slow down and smell the pines. Nice read and sounds like you enjoyed your trip. FRED

Grant me the senility to forget the people I never liked, the good fourtune to remember the ones do, and the eyesight to tell the differance.

Sounds like a good trip, just going with the flow.

It was also good to realize that it's possible to "get away" in only three days, instead of banking everything on having an entire week off. More short trips in the future for us.

Yeah, me too - I can't even get to MN and back in 3 days.

Sounds like you were able to recharge your batteries. Beautiful picture between Fraser and Thomas.
