I’ve camped on the banks of the Yellowstone River—by the clear waters of Bright Angel Creek at the bottom of the Grand Canyon—on the picturesque shores of Lake Champlain. I’ve toted a pack across Death Valley—carried grub along the Mohawk—enjoyed bear stew in Michigan—venison steaks on winter trails. You never need be hungry on a camping trip. At the end of each day’s going there’s the cheerful cooking fire the fragrance of food steaming in the pot—of Hunter’s Biscuits ready in a jiffy and maybe spiced with fresh, wild berries. Find your campsite, build the right kind of a cooking fire, get a supply of water at hand, and fill the air with that irresistible smell of food cooking in the open. There’s nothing else like it – From the intro by the author

A great Italian inspired flatbread recipe found on food52.com
Grilling is a stone age way of baking bread but don’t let that lead you to thing that bread baked this way isn’t just delicious. Particularly when using this Italian inspied recipe complete with olive oil, salt flakes and rosemary.
These delicious snacks can be made ready at home before you head for the hike and grilled on a campfire grill grid when you have set up camp, dinner is over and the tea water is boiling. If you don’t bother to bring a grid a few stick will work just as well.
You could make these snacks at home too of course, but we all know they will taste much, much better by the campfire – Ted 😉
