Bestie Camping Trip!!!

Hi all!! So sorry it has been this long! My busy month became a very busy several months and all of a sudden it is October! How the heck did that happen!!!!! I have many photos to share and finally a little time to share them! I better get on it before ski season starts! ;) These are photos from the camping trip Russ, Eric and I took to South Dakota in July. This is a very small snapshot. Between the three of us we took almost 700 photos!! I posted many more on Facebook. I hope everyone had a wonderful summer! It has been a very mild fall in Denver up until today. We had our first snowfall of the season today. Wolf Creek, a southern CO ski area, actually opened this week!! Fall is definitely upon us and winter fast approaching. Enjoy the photos and I hope to have more for you soon!!

My little campfire meatloaves. Just hollow out a large onion, stuff with your favorite meatloaf recipe, wrap in foil and throw into your campfire. (If any of you are familiar with South Park, these guys were cracking me up because they look like Terrance and Philip. Not many people got my reference though).
On the road with Eric and Russ (my besties). Russ and I left straight from work so we had a very long day.
We made a McDonald's stop in Cheyenne. While we were in line Eric leaned over and whispered "Have you noticed how there is only white people in here?" We had all had a very long laugh. Russ and I assured him that if anyone gave him trouble we would claim he was our hired Mexican chef for the trip.
All set up on our campsite at Custer's Gulch Campsite in Custer, SD
The meatloaves were a hit
The first night after setting up camp. Russ and I were well over 24 hours without sleep but the 3 of us had a great dinner and a lot of laughs
Day 2: Taking in the scenery
Wind Cave tour
Mt. Rushmore
We ended the day with a few beers at a very small local bar (with a sawdust floor) and left our mark on the wall
Day 3: We drove to Deadwood to hit the casinos and take in a little Wild West history
And we got some old timey photos that I just adore!!!

Day 5: Flat tire as we were packing up to drive home. Good thing I had the boys with me :)
(A little out of order) Day 4: We drove to Badlands National Park. Beautiful scenery! The boys were making fun of me for setting up the tripod but I got a lot of great photos of the three of us. There are more on Facebook!
It was a great trip with so many memories I will not soon forget!!!!!
