Camping Weekend

It’s nice to comeback to a familiar place and if the woods could talk it’s probably would greet me with a smile and ask where have you been Nye? I didn’t know you hibernate like the bears.

This is my first time seeing an antenna looking like an outer space craft.

The mountain flowers are very small, I had to look for it to spot them.

I’ve seen a yellow Dandelion, but have not seen a purple one before until now.

Lee enjoys camping a lot more this year, she has grown 6 inches in the last 6 months and pretty soon she will be taller than me.

But she is still a kid at heart, and flying with her marshmallow while waiting for grandpa to build a campfire.

Her new recipe of strawberry marshmallow with salt and vinegar chip.

It’s warm enough to cook outside, I can’t wait for the warmer weather.

All photos were taken with 5DMkIII, Canon 24-105mm f/4L lens.


  1. Lovely! I’m longing for this, it’s still so cold here, that even the grass is not AT ALL just a little bit green…….

    • Thanks Truels, it’s warmer for us since I live in the Southeastern part of the US. It’s still cold for people up North, I’m just enjoying Spring early. 🙂

  2. Wonderful photos Nye. Camping is such a great way to enjoy nature & the important things in life. Love the eyes & nose, haha – what are they made of? Clay? Love the purple dandelion too – very special & pretty. Looks like such a wonderful place & time. 🙂

    • Thanks Lithopsland, it’s a great way to spend time with friends and family also. I hope to spend more time camping this year. I didn’t greet the half face that close and not sure what they are made of. 🙂

  3. It looks like a nice day for family camping, cook-out, and fresh mountain air. Love the tree with the smiling face. 🙂 Btw, were the yellow forsythia pictured before the red camellias growing wild in the woods or just planted near the campground?

    • Cn, we had a nice time, and a trip to the Linville Caverns was a nice break from our normal camping trip, we need to do it more often. The yellow forsythia and red camellias were planted in the campground. The Rhododendrons grow wild in the mountain area, and it’s budding right now. They might be in bloom by May/June. They look much prettier in the mountain area than in our backyard.
