The Highlights

  • Banana slugs everywhere as we ascended and descended through cool groves of redwoods and manzanita trees
  • Cooking over open fire, in embers, in a Dutch oven, and using two kinds of stoves (i.e. becoming camp cooking experts)
  • Fresh cheese, made at our campsite (!!!!!)
  • Practicing the ins and out of the perfect flaky crust, harvesting eggs, and petting goats at Pie Ranch Farms
  • Making delicious monkey bread in our Dutch oven Sunday morning, and still having enough left over to delight the kids at the campsite next door
  • Stuffing ourselves with apple pie and fire-roasted eggplant (not at the same time) at gorgeous Bean Hollow State Beach
