lehman's cave

the Leavitt family had a mini reunion last week and it was a blast. we all headed up north out of the heat to camp and visit Lehman's caves. i probably sounded like a broken record, but up there in the aspen and pine trees i feel at home. and i couldn't stop commenting about it! camping up above 5,000 feet takes me back to camping as a young girl and i treasure those memories.

the kids were awesome. super great travellers and campers. there was a small 3 minute moment when rodney had a night terror because of lack of sleep and then i threatened to murder phoebe if she woke him up again. whoops.  lucy helped them all explore the little creek and grandpa took them fishing and shooting. they saw two beaver dams and that was the highlight as far as creatures came.

lehman's cave is a MUST SEE in Nevada. i have been to a fair share of caves and this one was amazing. besides being the largest one in nevada the hour tour was entertaining and memorable. even Rodney behaved the entire time. milestone!

we ate smore's galore and had a wonderful time, i LOVE camping so much. (Just not the clean up)
 grandpa leavitt is the best shooting guide ever, ever ever.
rod has a gallery gun that shoots mini 22's bullets. it sounds like a little "puff" in the air.
 perfect for kids learning.
 some got more into it than others, scary.
 watching rod with rodney was the cutest thing in the world.
 checking their target 

 in the middle earth
 the girls soaked up every bit of info

our guide was funny and quirky all at once. he's been a ranger their for 20+ years and he loves it.
 why do we even try? SMILE TY.
 i don't know who was more scared of whom
 baker, nv is a quaint little town full of unhygienic hippy artists.
we were just bitter because they didn't serve ice cream

all in all it was a great trip. i highly suggest Lehman's cave if you are in NV or UT
