Spring melt has just started in the mountains and the forest is filled with whispers from the rushing river water off in the distance. Eight of us sit around the flames, an orange hue coloring the faces of strangers sharing the warmth. Stories of our journeys to this secluded camping area are being exchanged: the struggles each of us faced as we hiked through the terrain and dealt with unexpected rain in an already frigid day, what trails we had taken and what wildlife we’ve seen- A Blue Stellar in particular who enjoys staying near the camping area to street performer its colors for food - , how long would we be there and where we planned to go afterward and what other national parks needed to be visited.

    into an intense game of cornhole. Once the sun set and the adults started making their eminent dinners, we went for a night swim. We brought out some glowsticks and, of course, ended up having extreme chicken fights in which Colton and I paired up and our friend Delaney paired up with Hailee.
