Fall camping

posted on 12th of september, 2008

Fall camping has its charms over summer camping:

1. Get to wear cozy sweaters.
2. Getting close around the fire to keep warm.
3. No bugs!


1. Better chance of getting rained on.
2. Swimming in mountain rivers isn't nearly as much fun.
3. Shorter days.

Our family likes to make an excursion for the labor day long weekend each year. This year's trip was out to Kananaskis Country. It is a beautiful area of Alberta, Canada. One of the great things about camping is the chance to see some wildlife!

Funny, I too thought that "family groups of at least three people" actually meant people! I will have to broaden my definition for the future. Cheers!

Perhaps reconsider the idea of submitting the raccoon family. Check out the approved assignment submissions -- an illustration of a penguin family was accepted! :)

Come on up! Glad to hear your family made out OK - that was a funny article on Hurricanes vs. Christmas you put up the other day...

Hey Brad, Love the Raccoons and the deer, great wildlife shots! You are correct about the pros and cons regarding camping in the fall. However, the fall colors and the wildlife are hard to beat and make up for the cons.

Congratulations on your assignment entry!
