Nationals 2007

Odell Lake

June,2007

 

 

Arriving in camp after an easy walk in with camp on our backs. Met up with several sisters which  we had not seen in a year or so. We all set up camp close by each other, making the week full of fun and music. Met new people and made new friends. Fishing was good. Lots of fish caught by primitive means and shared with all. Several camp meals shared with good friends. Good talks around the campfire. Memories were made.
