For many of us, the end of summer often brings a degree of sadness. While pumpkins, a turkey feast and a glistening tree are on the horizon, summer never seems to last long enough. The sun tucks away earlier in the night and the brisk air becomes more apparent each passing week. Fortunately, us San Franciscans get another month or so of high temperatures during our ''Indian Summer." With Labor day coming up next Monday, I can't wait to get out of the bustling streets to recharge among nature. That's right! This city girl is spending the long weekend hiking to waterfalls, cooking over a stove fire, bathing in a swimming hole and falling asleep to the sounds of a river underneath the stars! As a final hurrah to end the traditional summer months, a camping trip seemed to be just what the doctor ordered. For all you city girls like me, I've put together a comprehensive packing guide (glamping items and all) for your reference! In addition to all things you'll be needing, you will also find my favorite breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert recipes perfect for camping. All you need now is to pick a destination (list of great locations below) and embark on a camping trip of your own. No excuses!
