We decided to go camping the other day. It's the perfect way to get away from things and spend some good quality time with the family. So, where did we go, down to the Francisco Morazan state park?? Well, not quite. No parks around, and especially no parks with camp sites! So, we headed up into the Botija mountain range. A protected area where the ML coffee plantation is located. After about 1 1/2 hours of rough 4x4 driving, with Sol and Levin asking if we were there yet, we finally arrived. We were not sure if we would make it, the road we took had been badly washed out by this year's rainy season, at some places there was no more road, it had become creek bed and at other points large trees lie in our path. But, none the less, we made it. We had a great time setting up our site, collecting rocks for our fire ring, then collecting fire wood to build a fire. We set up the tent, and then we settled in for a little fishing. Unfortunately nothing was biting, other than the minnows that kept steeling Levi and Sol's worms. So, then we decided to do a bit of exploring and hiking around the surrounding mountains. We wore out pretty quick since Levi insisted on being carried! We made it back to camp and decided it was time to cook supper, about 5:30 PM. So we roasted hot dogs and ate them and then it was on to roasting marshmallows! The kids thoroughly enjoyed that. It was pitch black by 6 PM and since we go the cheap site there was not an electrical hook up!! So, we went to bed. Well, we got in the tent at least. It was quite a while before anyone dosed off. And then Ally and I were awake most of the night. The wind in the night was incredible, it was like tent camping in a hurricane. That added to a full moon that made it feel like someone had a spot light on us all night, well, we did not sleep much! But, we had a great time. And, there will be many more trips to come. Enjoy the pictures.
