Elephants and Sunsets

Triple reflection

These past five days i've been camping in the lovely town of Lakeview with all of its 2,000 inhabitants on the border of California and Oregon. My grandparents grew up in good ol' Lakeview and its a tradition to go camping there every Labor Day weekend. I would have to say that this trip was especially great. :) Everyday Leila and I would wake up to plan our agenda which mainly consisted of trespassing while on our random adventures to abandoned houses with dead animals inside, trying to find ways to get in the newspaper, asking people if we could poke around their house cause some ancestor of ours built it, asking boys if they had horses, awesome antique/vintage shopping(I bought a skirt for $1), watching the sunset every night down at the lake, and starring at the stars for hours because they just don't look like that in the city. 
We did so much more and I have tons of pictures but you all might get a little bored with them... but the highlight was definitely riding the elephant! Who would have thought we would ride an elephant in the middle of nowhere Lakeview?! Her name was Patty and we got to feed her snickers :)
Sometimes it's nice to get away from the hussle and bussle. I can't wait for next year!
