Boondocking at Marblemount

Well, its Thursday - one more day til we get to Friday!!

Not much going on around here - a little rain - a little sun - I thought I would share with you a few pictures from a previous camping trip a few years ago.

A few years ago we used to do a lot of camping at Beauty Bay. The camp hosts there were workcampers and would come to Idaho in the summer and Arizona in the winter and camp host there. We got to be really good friends. One summer they decided to camp host at Marblemount in Western Washington. Some friends and I decided if they weren't going to come to us - we would go to them. So we rented a small U Haul trailer for our camping equipment and towed it behind the van. Off to Marble Creek Campground we went.

Marble Creek Campground in in the Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest and is located on the Cascade River approximately 8 miles from the main highway (Highway 20) thru the Cascades. It is a wonderful campground with huge trees, campsites with fire rings, picnic tables, concrete pads, vault toilets, and has 23 sites for tents and trailers.

We had a wonderful river site where the marble river flows in to the Cascade River. It was the Primo spot!! Here are the photos.

That's one huge tree!

Can't you smell breakfast cooking?

Kickin' Back!

And A Glacier too!!
Now that's a big rock for three people.
Here is John, our camp host Russ, myself and Rich.
John debating with himself on whether or not to build another fire.

It was a great four days off! A good time was had by all!!

In the words of my father "That's it For Today".

I hope you'll be able to do a lot more of that camping and seeing more scenery, in the real near future!

A really pretty, tranquil spot. A great place to get away from it all!
