Surprise Date Day / Glamping

Honestly, Adam rocks. He is the master at planning surprise date days, and all other date days for that matter, but this one takes the cake.

One day he planned a date day(s) and told me to pack something casual, active and warm. Now, I don’t care what genre you tell me, I just want to wear a dress. Lucky for me, when he came to pick me up he told me to put on pants. So, before we left he asked if I could pick up a few things at the store; garlic, a tomato, onion and sirloin steak….now, one would think this was a dead camping giveaway, but to me (the girl who does not camp) I thought maybe we were airbnb-n it! It wasn’t until we clearly passed Santa Barbara that I knew something fishy was up. We turned into El Capitan Canyon, parked, and as we were walking to the lodge to check in (to what? I had no clue) Adam pointed to a tent and said, “We’re staying in that”. I. Was. Ecstatic. “We’re GLAMPING?!” I very excitedly said. This guy. He knows me too well.

We cooked up steak and veggies, ate cheese and drank wine around the campfire and had an encounter with a little skunk friend. All in all it was perfection.

Here are some details about the campsite.

We stayed HERE

For the tent it was $150 a night. If you’re staying for the weekend there’s a minimum two nights stay. They also have cabins and yurts.

You can buy BBQ and s’mores kits (or just bring your own stuff)

There are a couple little hiking trails (I say little because even the most amateur hiker, like me, can do it.

Here are a mixture of film and iPhone shots from our trip. We stopped in Santa Barbara on our way home and walked around the beautiful little town.            El Capitan Canyon Glamping - Megan Welker Photography 001 El Capitan Canyon Glamping - Megan Welker Photography 002 El Capitan Canyon Glamping - Megan Welker Photography 003 El Capitan Canyon Glamping - Megan Welker Photography 004 El Capitan Canyon Glamping - Megan Welker Photography 005 El Capitan Canyon Glamping - Megan Welker Photography 006 El Capitan Canyon Glamping - Megan Welker Photography 007 El Capitan Canyon Glamping - Megan Welker Photography 008 El Capitan Canyon Glamping - Megan Welker Photography 009 El Capitan Canyon Glamping - Megan Welker Photography 010 El Capitan Canyon Glamping - Megan Welker Photography 011 El Capitan Canyon Glamping - Megan Welker Photography 012 El Capitan Canyon Glamping - Megan Welker Photography 013 El Capitan Canyon Glamping - Megan Welker Photography 014 El Capitan Canyon Glamping - Megan Welker Photography 015 El Capitan Canyon Glamping - Megan Welker Photography 016 El Capitan Canyon Glamping - Megan Welker Photography 017 El Capitan Canyon Glamping - Megan Welker Photography 018 El Capitan Canyon Glamping - Megan Welker Photography 019 El Capitan Canyon Glamping - Megan Welker Photography 020 El Capitan Canyon Glamping - Megan Welker Photography 021 El Capitan Canyon Glamping - Megan Welker Photography 022 El Capitan Canyon Glamping - Megan Welker Photography 023 El Capitan Canyon Glamping - Megan Welker Photography 024 El Capitan Canyon Glamping - Megan Welker Photography 025 El Capitan Canyon Glamping - Megan Welker Photography 026 El Capitan Canyon Glamping - Megan Welker Photography 027 El Capitan Canyon Glamping - Megan Welker Photography 028
