The leaves are changing to their fall colors, and we saw a full Harvest Moon illuminate the night sky. The moon was so very bright that she cast very distinct shadows. When I awoke to her glory, I couldn’t even see the constellations. The days continue to be warm, even hot with a lot ofContinue reading “Fall”
To get to our next camp, it was decided that we should caravan. In the past, trucks got lost along the way and ended up arriving after camp set-up. I suspect that was part of the rationale for the cravan. That, and the fact that we really are in the middle of nowhere. North ofContinue reading “The Middle Of Nowhere”
