Bob and Andy's Camping Adventure

You will have to excuse this late post - I'm still catching up! This is from Bob and Andy's camping trip that they went on last weekend.
Ever since Andy was about 10, he and Bob have taken a few days and gone camping in the Manistee National Forest. They rough it, going in a tent and have no electricity or running water. They target practice, take lots of walks and just enjoy spending time with each other. This past weekend they were able to spend a few nights doing this before Andy left. They've never done it this early so it was a little colder and not very green, but they had a good time, regardless.
Here is their tent sitting in the middle of the woods.

The scenery was beautiful, even though there weren't many leaves on the trees yet.

This is a panoramic shot Andy took of the lake

You always need a campfire, right?

Even when there's a lot of beauty around you, but don't forget to look up!

THat is a really neat idea to take him camping and having their "own" time together to bond. Glad he was able to go out before he had to leave.
