Field Note: Colville National Forest

I've spent a couple of nights in a real bed but it's been mostly car camping for us which has been scenic or pathetic, depending on the night you find us out there. A couple of the nights I have just crawled into the back of the Pathfinder with Sampson. Anyone who has met Sampson knows he has active dog dreams, so my face has gotten scratched up a bit when sharing tight sleeping quarters (tent, car, or hammock) with him. There have been some beautiful camping spots too so I'm definitely not complaining. Best and worst of all, there is NO cell phone reception on this side of the Colville National Forest.
