Camp pictures.

If you have any camping site pics you want to share.........I've got a few here!!

This first one is not camping but a trail ride at the barn where my daughter takes lessons. I volunteered to be the cook as I have a few Dutch Ovens.

Here is the new tent I am looking forward to spending more time in.

Cooking over the fire with the old tent in the background.

I do some backpacking in to wilderness areas. Not on horseback but on foot, but more and more I am getting into camping from the truck. I like my creature comforts. I would like to develop one of the saddle horses into a pack horse so the creature comforts can go with me out into wilderness areas. I really like Dutch Oven Cooking, but those pots can be heavy.

Hey I've got a stove just like yours.

We use the wall tent a lot in the fall during hunting season. Night time temps often can drop into the teens at the 8000 foot elevation in October.

And its common to get buried under deep snow that time of year

Summer weather we often sleep under the stars or set up a light weight dome tent

And there are a lot of Spring and summer trips where I just sleep in the gooseneck

Hey, Nokota--maybe I should come visit you instead of you visiting me! I could use some lessons on dutch oven cooking; I've done some but I'm far from good at it.

Then again, maybe we should meet at Painted's and let him show us Northern Utah. Oh. Well. Maybe we should wait to be invited, huh?

I'd add some pix but since I haven't been camping in awhile, and never with the horse, I don't have any. Yet.

If you cook, You are always welcome to come visit me.

I get one or two groups a year that call up and say, "Hey we want to come ride some of your pictures, can we come visit? " and I always says sure.

Hmmm!!! Sailorgriz, sounds like a great idea!!!! I bet I can bring my cooking gear as well as my horse and tack and make it to Utah!!!!!

How does cheesy potato's, Cowboy BBQ beans, Beef brisket on the smoker, and top it off with a peach cobbler sound?????

Probably wouldn't be able to get on the horses to ride after that.

Here is the smoker I made last year.

Here is my "collection" of dutch ovens. The bottom one will hold 10 pounds of potato's.

Good grief! I figure I'm doing good with two of 'em--plus 5 or 6 cast iron skillets!

Tell you what . . . Painted's is a lot closer for me than for you. If you can figure out a trip, probably wouldn't be too hard to meet you there.

And Painted: I'm a fair turn in the kitchen myself. Nokota don't get to have ALL the fun! But, you're pretty sure to be well fed!

I used to do the cooking for the cowboy trail rides at the local barn. I used the profits to buy more DO's. The big one on the bottom was bought for me by my mother-in-law. She wanted me to cook for her family reunion using the smoker for pulled pork, and the DO's for the rest of the food. I figured I was going to be there anyway and might just as well keep busy as I did not know anyone so I agreed and got the DO for doing the work. You can find great deals on them if you look and are patient. I have a link to some less costly ones if you are interested.

I REALLY would like to trailer out west and ride and cook with you guys, but my busy season at work starts in the spring and ends in the fall. One of these years, I am going to save my vacation time and make it a point to trailer out west and do some riding. Unless of course the weather in Utah is not bad and we have a mild winter up here so I can safely get out of the northeast.

I ride a lot in the desert during the colder months. If you don't get to high in elevations the snow isn't too deep. ( we are a desert state after all)

February Rides will probably have some snow on the ground. But by march we can ride the desert with a just a jacket and not worry about snow. Some of my favorite rides are into the san rafael swell area of central Utah in late march and april and down to Bryce Canyon in May.

By June we start heading up to higher elevation alpine areas to ride to get away from the heat. But some of the higher elevation passes won't be snow free until July.

Come September we start hunting. So most rides are in what ever area we have draw Elk or Deer tags.

So bottom line is we ride and camp year round, But we select the area to do it in.

February Rides in the San Rafael

April Rides in the San Rafael. We don't go into this narrow canyons when there is snow and ice on the ground. The sun just never melts whats deep in these canyons

Each may we head down to Bryce Canyon area. It's located at 8000 foot, So it takes a little longer to melt off.

September brings hunting season. Which is usually my wall tent season
