Flambeau River Camp

With Autumn, Eric & Karlin Smith, Renee and Myself

Notice *that* Rembrandt staring at the Grill. That dog was basically a life support system for a stomach. All he thought about was food, food, food and more food!

But ... do I notice Sydney back there more than just a little bit interested? (They got as steak apiece!)

After all day on the trails, it is sure good to hit the sack. Even if the 'bed' is a little hard! 3/13/2017

Osborne-New Eldorado camp Copyright © 2017, Ramon Gandia

Camping at Osborne Creek

Where Osborne joins New Eldorado; Rembrandt, Sydney, Autumn and I went camping.

Autumn had some sort of backpacking tent; I had a Browning camping tent, about 6x8 ft. Heated. Nice! And Sydney had a dog bed inside to boot!

at Picnic Rock

When we go out on the Buster trail towards Flambeau or Eldorado we always stop at "Picnic Rock", a rocky outcropping with a fantastic view. That is Ramon, Kierra and Sydney.
