Girl’s first stop

Hi blog followers! I’m Liv, aka Girl. I’m really excited to share this post with you guys. I hope you like it.

I just started my two month road trip! The first place we went was Flaming Gorge Reservoir in Wyoming. The warm, murky water at the Flaming Gorge was kind of scary. I couldn’t even see my own feet in the water. As I brushed passed sticks they felt like fish. As I was in there, I got over my fish fear. Then I dunked myself! I was so proud of myself, I’ll be proud of what I did in the future!

A pass-through spot for our first night off the road turned out to be a nice little gem. We camped at Firehole Canyon Campground, South on the 191 from Rock Springs. It was Friday evening, (on Labor Day weekend) and the campground was pretty empty. We had a great spot, site #22, with a pathway down to the lake. Girl, Guy and Dog swam and chased sticks (all 3 of us) while Gal was still trying to recuperate from a cold.

Word to the wise, this campground was great, but had it been full it would not have been such a great find. Unbeknownst to us when we picked this spot, 2 sites share one spot. So 20 and 22 are RIGHT next to each other. Our fire rings were maybe 6′ apart. If you came with a couple of families this would be great, though we prefer much more privacy and space with strangers. As much as we love people, we also love to love people from a distance while we are relaxing at camp.

Great start to our journey! We are looking forward to seeing and experiencing our beautiful country and will update when we can. If we are slacking on our posts, be certain there will be an influx in November!
