Mother Daughter Camping By The River
Mother Daughter camping on Bench FSR. Our friends had set up camp and as I drove by I recognized their utility trailer and stopped to say hi! They invited me to join with my family so I went home and asked everyone if they wanted to go. Only my daughter wanted to so we packed up the tent and the camping bins, and we hit the road.

Setup didn’t take long at all and we enjoyed our one night by the river.
