Nana and Papa trip with Zachary and Zane Day 3 and 4

We left Trinidad heading for Thirty Mile Campground outside of Creede, CO.  Beautiful country but the fires have really destroyed a lot of the area.

We got camp all set up that day and just enjoyed the RAIN!  Yes again. 

There was a little excitement at our camp that night – a bear.  We slept through him (sort of – just heard noises).  But he found the extra dog food in the tupperware bin Ross had forgotten to stow away.  And yes, it was closed!  We became much more careful as we heard there was a bear, maybe ours, in another camp that night and took hamburger meat!
