The Petty Knife Goes Camping

One of the best parts about living in Jackson Hole is that we are surrounded by amazing camping options. You can go into the back country, the national park campgrounds, national forest or BLM land. You can go along a river, a creek, in the snow or in the mountains. I've even had a few campers in my backyard. This past weekend we went to a campground in the Red Hills. I really love this area because of the striking red hills that look like they belong in Moab, it is a complete contrast to the lodgepole pines and forest just a 15 minute drive away.

Here are some highlights from the trip:

Nature's cooler

We sipped the chilled beverages while enjoying this creekside view.

What camping trip would be complete without a delicious meal of local goods? We sauteed bell peppers, onions, local shitakke mushrooms from Mountain Valley Mushrooms and locally made Italian sausages from Cosmic Apple.

The key players.

The Petty Knife gets the job done.

Great for cutting mushrooms and limes too!

Sautee those goodies on a trusty Coleman stove.

Not too long until this is ready.

Then sit back and enjoy! This is a former New West KnifeWorks employee from back in the day when the knives were all made in Corey's backyard.

So the moral of this story is that the Petty Knife is a great companion for camping. Grab your favorite New West KnifeWorks knife and start making your Labor Day camping plans now. Get going!

Happy Chopping,
