Echo Lake

In typical Joel & Sarah fashion, we have overbooked ourselves a little this summer! This past week we went camping with our friends, Garrett & Jordan. It has become a summer tradition for us to go camping at least once with them. We had a great time at Echo Lake Campground. It is right at the base of Mount Evans. They still had some snow at the campground! It was a great escape from the heat in Denver. Joel had class on Wednesday night, so Garrett, Jordan & I went up early to set up the pop-up trailer (no more tent camping for me!).

We took the dogs for a long walk (they have 2 dogs--you can see Arya's cute face sticking out of the water on the left) and Haiku had her first real experience swimming in a lake! She L-O-V-E-D it. She is a true Labrador Retriever--she loves the water & she loves fetching just about anything!

We had a great time relaxing, enjoying nature, reading, spending time with friends, eating (Jordan plans the meals & did a great job!) and just being away from the busy-ness of life! I never thought I would really enjoy camping (especially because they like to go places without a shower), but I am really learning to enjoy the slower pace. Haiku had a great time, too. She came home and slept from about 1:00pm (after a good bath to clean her up!) on Friday to 8:00am on Saturday--straight through! We can't wait to go again!
