A high mountain lake fed by snow run off = COLD water.
Over the holiday weekend, CarGuy and I (along with 6 of our closest friends) went camping. We went into the Medicine Bow National Forest and camped at an altitude of over 9,000 feet. One doesn't move very fast at that altitude because it is hard to get your breath. We circled our 'wagons' like the wagon trains used to do with the fire pit in the center. The mosquitoes in this forest are epic! Remembering last year's trip, we brought enough bug repellent for everyone to have their own can. The woods were beautiful, days were temperate & nights were chilly. It rained off and on Friday and we woke up Saturday morning to find some mountain lion tracks in the damp earth in our camp. Here kitty, kitty.

Knitting is a perfect camping project. This year a skein of black fingering yarn accompanied me and it is becoming a shawlette/scarf. It has a lingering aroma of woodsmoke about it so it might be named Medicine Bow in honor of the trip.
Once home, I started piecing the backing for a donation quilt while the washer and dryer worked away in the background. The backing, binding, top and batting are now in a nice neat stack awaiting sandwiching, basting and ultimately quilting.
I hope you had as an enjoyable weekend as I did.
