Last weekend we went camping with some friends at the base of the Granite Range near Gerlach, NV. We wanted to hike up Granite Peak, but we got a late start and it was super steep so we ended up hiking about two-thirds of the way up. And, although the morning was fairly chilly at 15° F, it was a fun, beautiful and way too warm of a weekend.
Since we were camping, I decided it was a good weekend to breakout the dutch oven, I haven't used it in a while and I love cooking in it. I decided to make a sausage and shrimp jambalaya. It was delicious on a chilly night and I made enough that we heated some up in the morning, threw it in a thermos and enjoyed it for lunch on our hike. I forgot to take pictures of the food, I'll try to remember to do that in the future.
