Life of a Blogger: Camping

Life of a Blogger is a weekly feature hosted by Jessi of Novel Heartbeat. Each week, we share a little about ourselves and our real lives so we can get to know the people behind the blogs!

This week's topic is camping. I freaking love camping! I didn't do it as much as I would have liked last summer (I blame an extremely stressful move in June), but this summer is going to be different.

I'm really lucky that the mountains are less than a one hour drive from my house. Have I mentioned I love mountains! They are gorgeous! And I'm only minorly afraid of being eaten by a Grizzlie.

The only camping story I have (besides a drunk friend being convinced that the thunder outside was actually a giant bear) is when I was on a hike. We had stopped trailside for lunch and I forgot to zip up my backpack after removing my lunch. When I went to put my trash back in my bag, a ground squirrel jumped right out of my backpack and scared me half to death! I guess he was looking for my lunch as well!



  1. haha I FREAKING LOVE CAMPING, TOO! :D I haven't gone camping in far too long, but I love it so much! I even don't mind the not showering/bathing part...that's what swimming is for! I love just being outside, and near the fire the most though. It's so relaxing, and it's nice to be so in-tune with nature...and it's the perfect excuse to totally ignore the internet and your phone for a while! over the fire makes everything better! ;D

  2. Some of my favourite memories from growing up were of camping! Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find the time and resources to go in a very long time. Oh, interacting with squirrels is one of my favourite things to do while camping! I like to leave a trail of peanuts into camp and lay in wait for them to arrive.

  3. I've haven't been camping "for real' before haha, but I've enjoyed the times that I was able to spend in nature! :)

  4. Wow, so beautiful! I'd love a chance to go camping for real in scenery like that. Except maybe for the grizzlies O_O
