Friday night we just hung out, played the wii, went on a night hike, listened to a few speakers and ate food. I knew a few guys there, Tommy Tew, Steve Cox and Jared Nielsen. Steve sort of kept "appearing" places and would make this vampire-type face and show his 'fangs' and it kind of creeped me out but it was so funny too! A random girl brushing her teeth in the bathroom upstairs called me a thug when I poked my head in, I was wearing a hoodie because I was cold, but STILL! I just turned around and walked away. I didnt know what to say.
Melissa & I ended up sleeping on the balcony overlooking the living room down below bc the bedrooms were already full of people. The electricity went out around 1:30 am I think, for the whole block, not just us. It was a bit more structured than the Gable campout and they wanted people to be quiet & sleep by a certain time. Not such a fan of that. I am not a youth anymore!
Saturday morning we got up and put away our belongings back into Dil's truck. Had breakfast - pancakes, eggs (kinda burned) , bacon, and fruit. A bit later they had 5 mini classes and we got to go to 3 of them. So I went to one on dating, one about "empty yesterdays" and goal setting and I forgot the last one but they were all really good. Lunch was sandwiches, chips, etc. Including a "Dil Sandwich" (pic below) Lol
We took off around 12:30 and instead of heading straight back to Mesa , minus James who was getting a ride with someone else, we headed up to see a crater which we never found exactly but we found other cool stuff instead.
Bonito Lava Flow
Sunset Crater Visitor's Center & saw the Painted Desert
Wupatki Ruins Visitors Center & lots of yellow flowers
San Francisco Peaks
