I hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend! Stud and I sure did. We went and saw Hangover 2 on Friday night, camping on Saturday night, and spent Monday at the track eating crawfish! It was a little hot, but we maximized our time outside.
Our camping excursion was into Red River Gorge, our favorite place to hike/camp in Kentucky. Beau tagged along with us, his first overnight camping experience! He was a great camper. We made him carry his own food and he really did not seem to care in the least. He also got to play in a creek, chase wildlife, bark at hikers, and eat tons of sticks. I think he is confused as to why we aren’t always hiking.
We were worried it was going to be packed and we would have trouble finding a camping spot, so we started our hike around 2:30 to make it four miles. Our favorite trail has a long stretch along some cliffs and we wanted to set up camp on the ridge for a) a breeze, b) the sunset and c) so we would have a short hike out in the morning. We had plenty of time to get to the ridge, set up camp, and eat before the sunset. There were some clouds, so I was worried we would miss the sunset. But I was so wrong. It was one of the prettiest sunsets I have ever seen. We sat on the ridge for an hour watching the sun go down and enjoying some bourbon we had brought along. It was so relaxing and so nice to be outside on such a beautiful night.
