Camping with Hannah

This past weekend we made our annual trek to the Stephen Phillips Preserve on lake Mooselookmeguntic in Rangeley for long weekend of camping. We had a great time as usual, though the remnants of Hurricane Hannah impacted our Saturday night plans to chill out around the fire. Luckily our camp mates, Will & Kristen, had big shade/rain tent we could hang out under. So, even though we got an inch or so of rain, we managed to stay pretty dry and have fun.
This was Nellies first camping trip. The campsite we stay at is on an island, so Nellie got some time in the canoe which was amusing. I think she loved camping and was pretty well behaved. She was certainly effective at keeping the pesky chipmunks and squirrels away from our food (last year we had problems with this). So, she will likely get to go again next year!

John and Will had some success with fishing this year. I think between them they caught (and released) almost 15 fish! There was even an eagle watching the action from a nearby tree.

This is tent was an awesome addition to the campsite this year and was a big help in keeping dry during the rain!

John and Nellie are back from their canoe ride

Nellie moves to the front of the canoe which makes things much more stable...
