Sand Architecture

Sand castle on Ghost Lake

Last weekend, a really nice family camped at Boulder Lodge for a few days. The weather was a little on the chilly side for mid- July but on the last day of their vacation, the sun was shining and it reached 80 degrees so the kids finally got to swim and play in the sand. Then they got creative and built this beautiful sand castle. Thank you Messenger family.
