Weekly Photo Challenge: Camping Anyone?

This week the Daily Post weekly photo challenge is Optimistic. “How do you fuel the fires of optimism?”

I too am deep in the middle of a Northern winter which can cause cabin-fever and sleepiness in people like me who prefer the sun and warmth of the rest of the year. So every January, while the snowplows clear the roads and the bulldozers remove the snow piles which are so high they block the driver’s view of traffic…

I get out a new calendar, my Old Farmer’s Almanac and a map to plan our season of camping trips. I grew up camping with my family so naturally my husband and I began camping and continued while raising our two sons. We even took along nephews and friends of the boys so it was loads of fun! Even now, with one boy done with college and one just starting they bring their girlfriends along. Good thing they picked girls who like to do things outdoors 🙂

Here are a few photos from various camping trips over the years.
