I love camping, and my family knows this so Fathers' Days are pretty consistently times that I actually get to go camping.
Last year, in fact, the only camping trip I went on was Fathers' Day weekend. (see Fathers' Day 2021 in RMNP (Part 1) and Fathers' Day 2021 in RMNP (Part 2).
This past weekend was Fathers' Day 2022, and my family took me camping at Turquois Lake, which is just West of Leadville, Colorado.
It just happens to be the same place we went for Father's Day Weekend 2020Father's Day Weekend 2020.
I actually made it out on the Kayak 3 days. We got there Thursday afternoon, and I headed out on the lake on the afternoon / evening.
See Turquoise Lake Thursday Evening on Strava.
I also headed out Friday Morning before the rest of the family got up.

My family joined me on the lake after breakfast on Friday.
As we only have 2 kayaks and one SUP for 4 people, I spent quite a bit of time sitting on the beach rather than on the water, but that's ok.
We had lunch on the beach.
I even got on the SUP after we ate. I'm not nearly as good at it as the Beer Model is.
Most of Saturday, we spent on a 10 mile hike, but after we got back I got back on the lake for another kayak.
It was a great weekend. I'll share hiking pictures in "Part 2". Stay tuned on Sheppy's Blog: Fathers Day to see those pictures.
