camping july 6-7

We decided our little 4 man tent was too small for the 3 of us, so we upgraded to a bigger and taller tent just in time to camp up Big Cottonwood for a race Chris had planned on doing. We pack up the car and crossed our fingers that we would get a spot.
We were lucky and got a spot, but weren't as lucky with the weather. We went from this
to this
and then had to hang out in the tent until it stopped. Aniston was entertained with the camera while Chris and I chatted.
The hail put out the fire, drenched the pile of firewood that we didn't get covered fast enough, washed to bike, and left our chairs soaked. It did stay out of the tent. but left a muddy mess. Our neighbors were nice enough to share some dry firewood so we could finish cooking our dinner, and then we called it a night. Chris got up bright and early to race, and Aniston and I cheered him on.
The tent passed with flying colors so we'll be using it again soon!

Looks like fun minus the rain! Tren and I are dying to get out and camp!! Hopefully we will make it up to the mountains at least once this summer!
