Opening Day for Camp Bliss

Wayne is spending a relaxing moment after setting up Camp Bliss.
Wayne and I took the camper out for the first time this season spending two days and nights last week at Moraine Park Campground in Rocky. We enjoyed the usual camping activities - campfire cooking, hikes, watching the wildlife, and relaxing. 

We visited the Cascade Cottages owl nest and saw the two baby owlets - no sign of Mom or Dad Owl but I know they were close by. You can just make out the two fuzzy gray heads in the upper center of the photo.

The Bear Lake area (above) still has lots of snow and ice. Without the appropriate footwear, we chose not to hike around the lake.

Sprague Lake, at a lower elevation, was free of snow and ice so we hiked around the lake path. The shrubbery was leafing out and birds were nesting. 

An evening campfire was the perfect way to end our day. Later, we were lulled to sleep by Western Chorus Frogs in a small pond close to our camp site.
