First Dry Camp Experience

All I can say is EXCELLENT! We went up to Mirror Lake, the lady in the pay hut said that we were out on "Enjoy the Country Day" - or something like that, so we didn't have to pay. The Mirror Lake campground wasn't open. but she said that we could just stay in the parking lot. We did, and it was amazing. Just to go out first thing in the morning and take photos with no-one else around was spectacular. I am a bird fanatic, and I saw three THREE new species just that morning. What an amazing experience. DH caught three beautiful trout for dinner, he and I and stepson had an amazing meal (we had brought some asparagus) - oh, and we had a nice cocktail or three as well- and stepson managed to fix the cd player, so we could watch a fun show. What fun we had.

Dry camping isn't difficult at all. And you get a ton of added benefits, like being able to stay in some awesome places with fewer people. Congrats!

Oh my goodness, we had SUCH fun - I am gonna try to figure out how to post pictures on here - the pics I took with not another person ANYWHERE at Mirror Lake have got to be unique - oh and there was this osprey, hunting over the lake in the early morning, I cannot tell you how many hours I spent watching ospreys in Scotland all those years ago, and here was her cousin, searching for fish for her babies - it really warmed my heart. I LOVE Utah!

Did you get a chance to take a look at the night sky? When it is not washed out by campground lights, it can be very spectacular! Enjoy!
