We went random camping near Limestone Mountain in Alberta during the Heritage Day long weekend again. Hubby wanted to park even closer to the edge.
As we expected, there many other campers, most were gathered in large groups, I think the children had a ball.
Watch out for the potholes!
Off highway vehicles are not allowed on the gravel road, so most ride along the side of the road.
As we expected rain, we put up our tarp first. We like to put our tarp far from our camper if possible, as it is safer because of the fire, closer to the water and we feel more like we are camping.
We were so lucky to have such a secluded campsite.
The tarp is also great for the sun when it’s hot.
Our campsite from across the creek. We enjoyed the weekend so much, we didn’t want to go home.
Corn on the cob, homemade Boerewors (South African sausage) and Pork chops.
We can adjust the height of the grill with the reinforcing bars.
We made some scones in a cast iron biscuit pan, which we covered with another cast iron pan on the open fire. I used the “Cook and Enjoy‘ by S.J.A. de Villiers‘ Recipe. (“Kook en Geniet” deur S.J.A. de Villiers se Witbotterbroodjies.) Please see the next photo.
We turned them over about halfway and served them with grated cheese, butter and chutney. The cast Iron skillet in which we made the scones, is a Lodge Logic® Cast-Iron Drop Biscuit Pan which is available from Bass Pro.
Cattle across the creek.
The one day we had a huge thunderstorm, with scary thunder and lighting, the rain came down in buckets.
Steak and roasted vegetables like onions, Bell Pepper, mushrooms, carrots, etc.
