I spent the weekend camping in the Uinta Mountains about four hours north of the city. It was a lovely break with like-minded friends and lots of lakes.
It was a good trip. When I bought a “real” sleeping bag and other camping gear last year, I was still seeing my outdoorsy boyfriend. After he moved, I was worried I’d only use my stuff in case of a zombie apocalypse. So it was nice to realize that I have all sorts of Outdoor Types in my circle of friends–and to spend an outdoorsy weekend with them.
