Once at the North Pines site, we set up that tent for a week in Yosemite Valley, mid-summer. I remember those lovely days of hiking, cooking dinner with our Coleman stove, and then sitting on our foldable camp chairs, watching the stars come out and listening to the coyotes call. These pictures bring back a few memories of those hikes.
I know many people don't like to camp out. I suppose I'd never convince them to give it a try -- but those of you who have slept out on the ground know why I'm reviewing my camping gear (and skills) and thinking about the coming summer trip as December closes in!
Maybe you'll remember that great song, "Hit the Road, Jack, and don't you come back no more, no more, no more, no more!" I'm ready to hit the road.
