the campsite at a higher view

This weekend we headed away from the Super Bowl chaos and went out to enjoy some peace, quiet, and gold panning! As if its no surprise, we camped in the Angeles National Forest in the San Gabriel mountains (which recently had a fire but thank God its ok!) and we camped at new location to pan for some color! It was the perfect weekend getaway! I had a little bit of trouble at first… I shattered a wine bottle within the first 20 yards of hiking down to our spot, I lost my shoes at night in the river, and I forgot our food we bought at REI! Good thing we have positive attitudes while doing what we love! My boyfriend let me drink some of beer to make up for my wine breaking, I found my shoes the next day down river, and we always have extra food in our pack from the trip before so we didn’t starve- and the boys found a little bit of gold! All in all- it was a great trip! We did get back in time for the big game…. but we didn’t even turn it on 🙂
