Nestled in the Quaking Aspens at 9,000 feet above the sea, was our humble abode for a week.
Who new metal storage containers could be so cozy?
Things I loved about camp:
My sleeping bag warmed with bottles filled with hot water.
Beautiful yellow flowers that opened during the night and closed with the first rays of sun in the morning.
Starry, starry skies.
Pink and white balloons released and floating toward St. George, with notes of "What will I do to Arise and Shine?" attached.
Mrs. America teaching us about the 3 Crowns....the Crown of being a Princess, the Crown of the Lilies (as we consider others), and the Crown of our Savior, who atoned for us.
Crackling fires at night.
Signing the Young Womens Theme.
Giggles and sweet conversations heard through the plywood divider.
Pure and innocent testimonies.
15 extraordinary youth.
Learning a new hike.
Watching the Stake Leaders dance a choreographed number called, "Arise".
Coming home to my real summer home.
