1. Head lamps, while dorky looking, are SO practical.
  2. Reese's are a better smores ingredient than Hershey's!
    Am I the only one that didn't know this was an option?
  3. Always be prepared for pictures.
    Because they're going to happen.
  4. Make sure you have what you need to stay warm, especially at night! ❄️
    I essentially had two sleepless nights because I was so cold.
  5. It's okay to do your own thing.
    The rest of the group did a strenuous hike. I knew that it wasn't going to be my jam, so I did some plein air watercolor painting instead.
  6. Life is a lot easier when you don't worry too much about what people are thinking.
    When I stopped wondering if my fellow campers liked me or not, I had more fun and found it much easier to be myself.
  7. Black Canyon of the Gunnison is a beautiful national park.
