Spring means camping season! A couple of weeks ago, Joe and I headed to Onondaga Cave State Park (southwest of St. Louis, near Bourbon / Leasburg) for a day of fishing and camping. And no, we didn't visit the cave while we were there - maybe next time!
We arrived at the park around 2pm, set up camp and ate a quick lunch (sub sandwiches picked up at the Sullivan Walmart) before heading down to the Meramec to fish for the afternoon.I didn't have my fishing license, but was perfectly happy to catch up on some reading and sit in the sun.
We went back up to our campsite around 6pm (camping in the spring when it's light out longer is so much better than the fall!) and started making dinner. We're getting to be pros at this cooking on a fire thing (and by 'we', I mean Joe, obviously). We recently bought a camping cook set with a pot, bowls, sporks, etc (again we = Joe) and it came in real handy. Brats, beans, grilled peppers and broccoli/pasta salad. Nom!
