I went camping with a few friends at Plumas National Forest. We found a spot by one of the creeks to set up our site, then enjoyed a low-key weekend of fishing and hanging out.

We saw all sorts of fun nature-y things . . .
Look at that nature stuff over there! (Photo by Odelle.)
. . . like tiny flowering succulents in the moss:

. . . and a giant banana slug!
Ahhh!! A banana slug monster!
And then – well, I’m not sure I should tell you this, but . . .
Uh oh! (Photo by Odelle.)
. . . it turns out when you go camping with a couple of environmental engineers they teach you how to do crazy things, like melt glass bottle in campfires. Okay, not that crazy, really – and actually very cool looking!

What’s your favorite way to spend a summer weekend?
What I wore:
Kitschy Kitchen Dress by Heartbreaker, via ModCloth. Nothing like a cotton halter dress to keep you cool on warm, sunny days. And since I don’t really get to wear sundresses in San Francisco, I take full advantage of wearing them when I head off to warmer destinations outside the city!
