Camping - Elevenmile Reservoir

We decided to try a new campsite out this time - and I couldn't have been more pleased! We went up to Eleven mile Reservoir. If you don't know where that is, it's west of Colorado Springs about an hour or so, past Woodland Park. I can't believe I've lived in Co my whole life and never been there! It didn't take very long to get there, but it seems SO far away. Despite the rain - the TONS AND TONS OF RAIN, we had a great time! The scenery was awesome, the amenities were great and when the sun shined it was a really beautiful place. I'm really glad that our campsite wasn't near the lake though, there was thousands (no exaggeration) of these "mosquito like" bugs (they weren't mosquito's but looked similar). That was really gross, but overall a really fun trip and I can't wait to go back! Kaitlyn had a fabulous time, and was so bummed when we were leaving. She said "I thought we were going to stay forever!" Mike said, "don't you want to go back to your home? Don't you miss it?" She promptly said "No!". He laughed and said, too bad. We went with Jamie, Mike and the kids - all four dogs - and Rayme's family. It seemed like there was something for everyone - and I think we all had a great time! It wasn't a bad start to the camping season!

Looks like a blast! We will have to definitely check that spot out. We should go camping together some time this summer.
