A couple of weeks ago all the boys and I headed out on a camping trip to California. This was my first camping trip in 11 years. Yikes. I was a bit nervous about going. My boys are all tough and like to primitive camp.
The first day we left Utah and started through Nevada. One of our first stops was also one of our favorite swimming holes.
The boys also went on a bullfrog hunt.
And finally caught a small one.
We drove the extra-terrestrial highway.
We made it most of the way through Nevada and stopped at some hot springs the first night.
It was nice to soak before bed and to warm up in the morning before leaving.
Our next stop was Virginia City, Nevada. It was a cute little town.
Our main reason for stopping was to visit the mine that my great-great grandpa owned and sold to Comstock. Jack learned about it last year and loved seeing the actual mine in person.
We didn't make it as far as we had hoped the second day and ended up staying in Reno that night. Our oldest son had a friend there that he really wanted to spend time with so we decided to get a hotel.
