The Nine bABies for 2009 bABy camp had a fine time

The first day was cloudy and rainy.  Fourtunately there were enough breaks in the rain to get the tents and the "big top" up.  Blankies or coats came in handy. Some of the bABies took a road trip to the Big Horn Canyon Recreation area.

On the second day the sky cleared and the bABies took a trip. The first stop was the Shell Falls overlook.   After a bumpy ride down a 4WD road we found the lakes.  A dip in the lake at 10,000 feet was attempted by a few brave (or foolish) bABies. 

Our tow ropes came in handy when we helped pull a tourist from the stream.

The wild flowers were begining to bloom adding color to the mountain meadows.  We also encountered a moose on the way back to camp.  He probably would have enjoyed the taco salad that we feasted on back at the camp.  Roasted marshmellows and smores were on the menu for deserts.

The Third day of camp the bABies saw the historic log flume. We took the scenic route down the Red Grade Road.  A gravel road with steep incline that comes down the face of the Big Horn Mountains.  There is a great view of the valley below.

A fill up of gas for the vehicle and ice cream for the bABies was needed before we headed to the cave. 

Couple bABies hiked part of the way while the rest went into the cave.  An equipment malfunction caused use to turn around in the rain room (after a much needed underground CHANGE.  

It was refreshing to leave the 95 degree temp of the valley and return to the cool camp site for steaks and burgers. 

As usual-- the best thing about 2009 bABy camp was the companionship of old friends and the making of new friends.
