Memorial Day / by Michael Durr

It is truly amazing what a two hour drive will get you. This Memorial Day my girlfriend and I and some close friends took a weekend camping trip to Galena, IL. Our actual campground was in the town of Elizabeth, IL, which is just outside of Galena. The campground was called Vel Terra Ranch. It was a beautiful campground with great facilities for glampers. We had a delicious fajita meal prepared over the fire by Jim Braniff on Saturday and then ate in downtown Galena on Sunday. If you ever check out Vel Terra Ranch remember that they have electric fences around the horse pens, I know this because I was zapped by it. Be sure to check out all the photos.
