    The weekend

    Well, we had a fun weekend. After realizing that we hadn't used the Trailer in all of September, we figured we better get out for the last chance weekend. Good idea. We headed about 15 miles from home up Big Cottonwood Canyon. After 15 years of traveling hours to Yellowstone and never seeing a moose, what should go tromping through our campground but this:
    And this.

    Thats a whole Moose Family, in case you can't tell from the great picture, courtesy of the BB Pearl.

    And then we drove over Guardsman Pass into Midway/Heber Valley. Look at that view. I don't remember a time that I've ever seen the leaves so pretty. We must have been right on the money when it came to foliage viewing timing.

    Other fun things that happened:

    Meg filled up the Audi's trunk with wood and joined us for Tin Foil Dinners. Fun.
    The Boy Scouts next to our camp decided our wood was better for stealing.
    Sean throwing lighter fluid on the campfire and scaring the crap out of the kids.
    Why does this seem to be a recurring theme?
    The batteries in the trailer going dead so the heater wouldn't work. Not fun.
    The drive over Guardsman. Fun.
    The rain. Not fun.
    Watching "The Suite Life of Zach and Cody" over and over and over. Not fun.
    Deciding at 7:00PM to leave because the rain was just too much. Fun.

    I don't know, Keli. Those moose look like damn Sasquatches to me...
