My best friend (Matt) and I recently packed the Jeeps and went went glamping. This time of year we usually backpack, but this was a nice change of pace. For us, glamping involves camping with creature comforts that we wouldn’t otherwise have when backpacking. For instance, we grilled ribeye’s for dinner that evening. The Huzzah Conservation Area includes a portion of the Ozark Trail and has varied terrain with great overlooks into the beautiful country side. This particular area has seen an uptick in traffic since being featured in Backpacker magazine. We camped on Friday evening and tackled a 12 mile day hike on Saturday. It was a great trip. Enjoy the Photos!

Home sweet tent!
Meet Annie, she was a great hiking companion.
Huzzah Valley overlook. We stopped and ate lunch at this point. It was a great view.
A little spelunking.
The temperature outside reached 58 degrees. However, the water was barely above freezing. It’s all part of the experience.
It was a great day for a hike.
