Bummer that Badger Pass is closed. This weekend would have been Spring Fest.

We used to joke that if somewhere was having a drought, they should invite us to go camp there. We always liked to camp in Yosemite in May so we got rained on a lot. Maybe we should go camping soon and break this drought.
