Hike time

Yesterday started with another lovely walk by our campsite. The mornings here are so peaceful.

After my walk, I got to breakfast. It was still chilly out which made it a perfect morning for oatmeal.

I used our jet boil and added 1/2c mix of rolled oats and oat bran with water and soymilk. At the end of cooking i stirred in 2-3T raw protein, protein powder. I think it kind of has an oat-like flavor, so i dont really notice it mixed in at all.

I topped it with banana, strawberries and justins maple almond butter.

After breakfast, we packed warm clothes and food and were off to the festival until late saturday night.

I picked up kale chips from the steaming bean coffe shop. They make them in house and the were crazy delicious. I cant go a week without my kale!

The weather was nice yesterday. Sunny and hot but there was a steady stream of clouds that helped keep us cool.

Right now, we're grabbing breakfast and coffee in town and then we're heading out for a hike. Then, a little more music and we leave monday morning.

The best hiking hairdo? French braid!

72hrs

I havent showered in 3 full days but surprisingly dont feel too dirty. Thanks to comfortable temperatures and a LOT of baby wipes. :)

Who wants a hug?

Yesterday was a blast. It was overcast and a bit chilly with a few sprinkles of rain. The music highlight of the day, for me, was Trampled By Turtles. I just love their energy on stage! Bela flek and joe pug were also favorites. Today the lineup is crazy good. We're not even heading back camp for dinner or to change into warm clothes because the lineup is nonstop awesome today. We packed lunch and our warm clothes, so we're good to go.

Heres a little recap of yesterday..,

We rocked the campsite dinners again! Brown rice tortilla, hard boiled egg, cheese, hummus, salt + garlic gold for me. Field roast vegan sausage, cheese, green pep, garlic for Chris. We also made Annies GF mac n cheese in the jet boil with soy milk and a little butter. Hit the spot and the brown rice noodles were great!
