Echo Ranch Family Camp 2019

Weather was perfect this weekend for our trip to the end of the road
…and then a little bit further! Here is Ati giving Imogen a lift the last bit of the way to Echo Ranch at high tide.
Ansel’s general demeanor as we signed in. Family camp has been going for thirty years or so and was started when a group of families rented the camp!
Breakfast buds. All meals are provided during camp and Echo Ranch staff were very organized and helpful!

Imogen’s highlight was the horseback riding. Here she is on Buddy!!
Ansel was not so into the riding, but he liked the scene from the arms of his dad.
Our home for two nights, Eagle cabin. Seven bunk beds and a wood stove!
Pre-last night bonfire log jumping
Walking out. It was hard but we’re glad we did it and can’t wait for next year!
