Throwback Thursday | More Summer Snow.

me, in front of our family's tent, Labor Day Weekend, 1973
...this time from Labor Day Weekend, 1973, camping in Wyoming's Snowy Range. Labor Day was Monday, September 3 that year.

I remember waking up to snow one of the mornings we were there - and I remember we were all  surprised by it. and cold.

I don't remember that I packed a jacket and maybe even boots for that "late summer" weekend in the mountains. But apparently I did (or maybe my mom did - I was ten and maybe had a little bit of help with my packing that summer?!)

This is the only "snow" camping trip I remember. Looking back, and considering how often we went to the mountains (the Bighorn National Forest was one of our favorite weekend getaways - it's even further north), that's maybe surprising. Or maybe we just got lucky?!

My family was constantly camping, but we rarely ran into snowy weather. I do remember some very wet nights, however. Love the pictures and memories of your family adventures!

Hannah's birthday! We've never had snow here on that day, at least.

When I lived in Wyoming, I remember the old adage . . . "There are only two seasons in Wyoming: Winter and July." :-)

My husband and I had one camping trip in the snow and that was enough for me. : ) We are having a break from the baking sun today but what a wonderfully refreshing picture!

My family spent summer vacations camping throughout NY & New England, so I remember plenty of cold mornings, but not snow. I do remember a Girl Scout Jamboree with snow. We were wilderness camping in the highlands at West Point, NY in late October. We had a big nor'easter that dumped over a foot of snow on us, somehow we made it through the weekend!

Snow in September...Never was a fan of camping, but more because of creepy crawly things!
