Summer is nearing an end, so we want to make the most of those warm nights with this week’s #PPAroundTheCampfire Instagram challenge!

Of course literal campfires are fair game, but feel free to get creative with your interpretations. You can focus on the campfire vibes of warmth, storytelling, and camaraderie. Maybe your entry is from a “Remember that one time you got so lost…” moment friends always ask you retell. Maybe your entry is from a spontaneous trip to a swimming hole with buddies. Or perhaps it’s from the recent eclipse.

Diving into Icy Waters in Moraine Lake, Canada

When we first arrived, fog drowned out every peak surrounding Lake Moraine. Nothing could be seen but a near perfect reflection of the clouds. But as soon as the fog lifted, it took very little to convince my friend to dive into the cold, glacial water. @passionpassport #PPAroundTheCampfire
