Camping at Happy Meadows, Colorado

A few weeks ago we went camping at Happy Meadows. It’s on the South Platte River about an hour away. We got the best spot, #1 ┬áright on the┬áriver with access to the water.

The scenery is really pretty and it’s very quiet.

Apparently there was a lot of fishing to do. Mike caught three fish.

While he fished I set up the trailer and campsite and made lunch.

Sandwiches are tastier when camping.

On his way out of the river Mike took a tumble.

After that he needed a beer.

Left Hand Brewing's Milk Stout is very tasty.

It’s always windy in Colorado and I forgot to bring any hair ties so Mike suggested I use a mini bungee cord. LOL.

We had a nice dinner of hot dogs, confetti corn, baked beans, and baked potatoes. OMG, the propane oven in the trailer makes the best baked potatoes. I don’t like fish, so Mike never keeps the ones he catches when he’s camping with me. Lucky fish.
