Fall Camping just the boys

Nathan and Elliot headed north to do an overnight camping trip. Nathan has a friend who owns some property and generously has offered him a place to camp anytime. 

Mild 70 degree weather was a nice surprise this Autumn. The warmest October in a long long time. The day Nathan and Elliot hit the road and head a little further north the first snow of the year appeared. It was funny because it was sunny and still relatively warm in Zeeland but an hour away and it looked liked this. That is the unpredictability of living in Michigan. 

We had missed the colors when we went to the UP but they had finally arrived on this trip. 

We don't own enough land for Elliot to shoot his BB gun whenever he wants, this was a good opportunity for him to give it a try. 

The property is close to an elk herd. At night you can sometimes hear them.

Best part of camping, being cozy in the tent, reading comics and listening to the radio.

Elks, red trees, camping and open land - something that we never see in HK! Love the life that you are enjoying! X Elaine
