She didnt know he walked up to her
This was not going to be you average camping adventure.  My instructions were to pack light because my pack was going on a pack mule.  along with the 6 others coming on the trip.  Two of my aunts and 4 of my aunts friends and of course me.  We boarded our plane in Boston and a short layover in Salt Lake City a few more hours and we landed in Missoula Montanna.  Our giudes met us at the airport and gave us a ride to our bed and breakfast and then to thier house.  We dropped pff what we didnt need at the bed and breakfast and then went to the house so we could drop off what we were going to be taking on the trip so they could have evrything ready to load onto the mules.

  Back to the bed and breakfast to spend the night and the next day we met our giudes at our starting point where they matched us up with our horses and mules.  I wanted a horse so they matched me up with one named Candy Bars he was an awesome horse and this would be his last time making the trip.  One of our guides started off with us and the two others were behind us a little ways with all the pack mules.  It was such a beautiful ride into the forest and so relaxing to be on a horse after not being on one for years.  There was still alot of burned sections all throughout because the year before they had those terrible wild fires.  We crossed rivers and over little streams and finally w came to our base camp.  The next few days were riding up to the lake to do some fishing my giude let me catch his 3 fish limit plus my 3 fish limit they were just little guys the lake doesnt get fished so its over populated but still the trouts were tasty.  We picnicked in the Bob Marshall wilderness for a day and we also crossed over into the Scapegoat wilderness for a short time.  Finally it was time to go back we all went back to the bed and breakfast some of my aunts freinds went dancing at the roadhouse down the street and then the next morning we were back in Missoula boarding our plane back to Boston.
