This past weekend we went camping to Eleven Mile Reservoir near Lake George, Colorado. The scenery around us was gorgeous and we very much enjoyed spending time with good friends and being outside in the mountains. It did get windy in the afternoons, but it calmed down again in time for my favorite part of camping, s'mores on the campfire!
I used to be very self conscious eating s'mores. I make such a mess and feel like the fat kid with chocolate and marshmallow all over my face and hands. I now realize that there is really no other way to enjoy a s'more except to get messy. We melt the chocolate on the graham next to the fire, toast the mallow to golden brown and it becomes the highlight of the weekend. Pair it with a glass of cheap white wine and I really cannot ask for anything better during my camping experience. Shane knows to pack the ingredients in order to guarantee a successful camping trip.
