Yeah, it really was ... I could have cast a fishing line from the balcony.

You see, my sleeping bag is bust and won't zip up anymore and I'm getting tired of sleeping in my jeans and then having to retire that pair till we hit a laundry stop. It's arseaching and I'm sick of it. So some sweat pants give me something warm to sleep in that will hopefully make up for the busted bag.
... close by, with toilets. Who needs to pay $20 for a campground when we could get all of this for free?
We did a short hike along an ATV trail the next morning, mostly to give the Quincy and Samson a little exercise. Then we headed further south to another group of campgrounds on the southern edge of Granby Lake. This site was a bit nicer, as one section was not yet clear cut, and there was potable water to replenish our supply. We hiked up ...
