Gratuitous Camping Pics

We just got back from a 3-night/ 4-day camping trip, which was my longest stay yet in the RV, and I had a BLAST! I got to hike and drink and eat… basically my three favorite things. Another favorite thing? Getting a new outfit for the aforementioned hiking! Seriously, I could blow my entire paycheck each month on cute little athletic outfits 🙂

Well, of course I don’t hike in the flip flops, but isn’t that little skort just the cutest? Technically it’s for running, but if you wont tell on me I’d appreciate it. And those cute little furbles are my “bonus dogs”, Allie (the golden) and Cody. Behind me is the view we had from our camp spot in Gunnison County on the edge of the Big Blue Creek. We saw elk nearly every morning and night as they went back and forth to the water.

I love Colorado. I know there are beautiful spots all over the world, but this state will always be my favorite! Here’s a few more:

And some more green mountains. I don’t remember where this was shot exactly, but it’s too pretty not to share!

I got to stop in three Colorado towns I’ve never been to: Gunnison, Lake City and Creede. I also got to visit two awesome restaurants, one in Del Norte and one in Gunnison, both with great vegan options which I’ll be sharing on my Mile High Vegan Eats page soon. The dogs got to play in the water and we all got to see tons of elk. It was fantastic!

We also ate very well. Because we’re glamping rather than tent camping, we have a fridge and stove and microwave which makes things easy. We had green chile black bean burgers the first night, with spicy pasta salad, and we also had tuno salad sandwiches and grilled seitan steaks! And wine. Lots and lots of wine and beer and gin and vodka. I’d say it was a well-rounded menu 🙂
