This last weekend marked the 20th annual company campout for our team. We close the office for a couple of days, and take everyone out into the woods for a few days of R&R, teambuilding, and mainly just having fun in the mountains.
This year we chose Lake Alpine. In keeping with our tradition, we were just a little too close to a large forest fire to be completely comfortable, but in the end the fire was under control by the second day of our campout, thanks to hard work by the firefighters and a little rain.
Did we have fun? We had a great time. We did a couple of really nice hikes: A shuttle hike from Sandy Meadow Trailhead to Woodchuck trailhead, and then a rougher day-hike down the Mokelumne River to Deer Creek and back.
We ate and drank like kings, and fortunes were won and lost at the gaming tables.
We are now all back in the office. sigh.
