August 14 - 16 Mountain Park campout

Friday afternoon we arrived at Mountain park campground in the Roosevelt National forest. It was a beautiful afternoon/evening, with temps in low 70's. We had 13 units there and that made for a terrific group of friends and fellowship. That evening, there was a beautifl sky. We had a lovely evening sitting around the fire place and chatting. One of our members brought a laptop that he had a program on that he built, randam songs would play and the words would be hilighted - we sang for about an hour, old favorites like Puff the Magic Dragon, Moon River, America the Beautiful and many, many more!

Saturday morning dawned with rain showers - but they didn't last long! We were all scheduled to be at the pavillion at 9:30 to load up the milk can with veggies/sausage. We layered it, potatoes, carrots, corn on the cob, cabbage, onions, sausage...and put it on to cook for 2.5 hours (very high altitude, normally 1.5 - 2 hours does it!).

Yum yum yum!

A wonderful meal was had by all! We decided we would do a 'drag out' hot dog roast at 6:30 pm and until then it was everyone for we decided to sit and chat :)

The dragout was yummy, as was the pastry baked goods Sunday morning. Lots of games were played, garbage, mah jong, poker, etc., and lots of fun was had by all. We also played ladder golf, washers and some folks just strolled and hiked with their pets!

All too soon the weekend came to an end, and we headed home about 2 pm. Now we are on our home pad, hoping to head out again in a week.

Longmont Drifters...thanks for the memories!!!
