CAMPING at KINGDOM LAKE

 It’s always a lot of work preparing the food for a camping trip . . . so I try to have fun with it, too.


It was a long drive so we stopped in Lillooet for lunch on the road.   

It was a good weekend for sighting wildlife from the car: grouse, deer, elk, mountain goats!  In camp, there were squirrels, chipmunks, and friendly Whiskey Jacks.

I missed taking a picture of an amazing BIG mushroom:  bright red with yellow spots!


Consolation photo: a great big frog!

I made a bologna-cheese appie for Happy Hour.  It was hopeless and Bohdan Zahny's Buckwheat Bread was worse, but the wine

 
smoothed the rough edges.

Dinner featured yummy beans baked with peaches and apples and dolloped with yogurt!


The leftover beans went great with breakfast, too.


It got pretty chilly at night, but the layers worked.
