Fall Camping Trip

We wrapped up our 2018 camping season earlier this month.


Yaak River Campground between Bonners Ferry, Idaho and Troy, Montana.

Our campsite was right on the river.


Friday evening, October 12 through Sunday afternoon, October 14.


Lyle and Karla, Rebecca, Cookie-the-Dog

Lyle getting ready to unload the firewood.
Cookie has no inclination to be a lap dog. But she does prefer to have her own chair, thankyouverymuch. And she is always the happy recipient of any attention she gets from the Man.


Lovely for fall. Some sunshine. Some rain.


  • Friday supper: hot dogs, chips and salsa, pork’n’beans
  • After-supper snack both nights: Campfire popcorn
  • Saturday breakfast: scrambled eggs, bacon, sour dough toast
  • Saturday supper: hamburger patties, baked potatoes, broccoli
  • Sunday breakfast: scrambled eggs, bacon, sour dough toast
I forgot to take mustard or ketchup, but in spite of that it was still a very tasty hotdog! Something about roasting it over the fire…
This is Lyle’s set-up for cooking breakfast. Toast in the upper rack… and the skillet in the middle for bacon and then eggs.
This was the set-up for supper. Hamburger patties in the burger basket, foil-wrapped potatoes baking in the coals, and a bundle of broccoli on the “back burner.”
I bought red popcorn (also blue, and yellow) at a Mennonite country store in Bonners Ferry.


  • Visit to the Mennonite store near Bonners Ferry.
  • Drive to Spar Lake to check out that campground.
  • Reading by the campfire… or in the hammock by the river.
  • Short hike along the river.
  • Conversation.

Wildlife Sightings:

  • Lots of deer!

Day is done.

Gone the sun,

From the lake, from the hills, from the sky.

All is well, safely rest.

God is nigh.
