Boulder Basin

Our first camping trip of the summer. Due to fire restrictions, we couldn't camp at a primitive campsite and have a campfire, so we went to a developed campground. Went to Boulder Basin campground on Black Mtn. and took Emi's friend Mallory along. Kids just love hanging around other kids.
The kids enjoyed riding their bikes at somewhere other than up and down our street.

What's camping without roasting marshmallows and smores?


Our morning hike to the Black Mtn. lookout tower...























Many boulders along the way where the kids loved to climb...





















The lookout tower at 7772 feet elevation.
Another summit on the 100 summit list. #6 for me, and #2 for Emi and Abby.

Inside the tower, manned in the summer to lookout for forest fires...







A little bed reserved for Smokey...










































The kids arm wrestling. Surprisingly, Abby's pretty strong and beat Emi left-handed, and beat Sage both hands...












A rattlesnake we saw on the side of the road...













Enjoying the great outdoors...
