Fourth of July Camping Trip

Our pup Makita is absolutely TERRIFIED of fireworks. While Talon (my husband) and I both love fireworks, the holiday has become extremely stressful for all of us.

We've tried everything from essential oils to calming treats, and turning up the music in the house to drown out the sound of fireworks outside. Poor Makita just wants to hide in her kennel all night. Not fun.

So we packed up and rolled out Tuesday night and headed up to the mountains for four days where we'd be far, far away from any loud scary noises. 

It was SO peaceful. We hadn't been to this spot in two years, and it was just as beautiful as I remembered it being. Aside from Stanley, ID, this might be at the top of my list as one of my favorite spots to camp. Watch the'll see why.

I hope everyone had a great fourth! If you have animals that are scared of fireworks, let me know what you do to keep them calm in the comments!
