Let's Go With Plan B

Our friends Eric and Jenny invited us to go up the canyon for a fire and tin foil dinners. Of course we said yes! We love getting outdoors and with how nice the weather has been lately, we knew we'd be in for a good time. So the plan was to go to a favorite camping spot and build a fire and make some dinner. However, when we got up to the turn off for the campsite there was a huge pile of snow several feet tall blocking the road. I was surprised that there was still snow since it's been so warm lately. On the other side of the snow was the road, but it was so so muddy. Like the kind of mud you get stuck in. The four of us decided it wasn't worth the risk and looked for another option. Well there is the large dirt parking lot that we'd passed a little ways back where you can camp too. So that was plan b. We pulled into the parking lot and found a good spot for our fire and got to work. The boys were in charge of the fire of course, they always like that job. We got our chairs set up and we got busy enjoying the sun and the fresh air. Once we had some coals going we got the tin foil dinners in the fire and then dinner was served. I pre-cook our tin foil dinner so that all they need is to be heated in the fire. If you want to know how I make them, you can read about it here. There's something about dinner cooked over a camp fire that makes it taste so good. We all really enjoyed dinner. Of course we made s'mores after dinner and as is campfire protocol, we all exchanged stories and had lots of laughs. Such a fun evening, we can't wait to do it again!
