I desperately need a fix of that sweet camping air - redolent of pine needles and dust, wet grass at the lakeside and aromatic woodsmoke...

It is as if I just had an injection, and now I'm hooked. With one new taste of the camping experience after a few years of absence, I absolutely have to go back! I had forgotten how much pleasure I get out of being out there. I suppose I could just blow off the weekend chores (yep, back to house painting again) and head for those soothing granite strewn mountains...

You only live once! Go for it!
Beisdes the house would only offer up new chores to replace the completed ones :-D

Happy Wednesday, Terry, been meaning to email you for a while - to weird to have had you here and since I haven't had the chance to have a good ole chinwag with you about it all and more. Miss you, think of our time together often. Say hey to G for me. xo

Looks like an angel is in the clouds watching over all you visit. I say go for it. I so do love these wonderful pics and the energy and passion you show in posting them. Bravo Terry!

Autumn, so great to hear from you! I've got lots to talk about... CHINWAG: LOL that would be a super word to define over at
Doug's
place... I know you like words and that one is funny.

I'll pass on your greetings - love and hugs to you, Karina, Maria, and your Mum & Dad.

tsduff said...

Actonbell - thanks! Good definition!

Trée - You are so nice :-) Energy and passion? Well, passion maybe... the energy is just saving up waiting until the next trip to blaze out. You know, "virtual" energy.

Actually, Terry, I wouldn't know a Douglas Fir from a Pascover Privet. I know the flora and fauna of the White Mountains pretty well from having been both.

Thanks for the referral :)

tsduff said...

My pleasure :-)

Are there headlights shining to make this brightness and shadow? I want to crawl inside the bark, it is so vivid.

tsduff said...

Hey Keshi - how was your walk? Are you near the shore? Sounds wonderful!

Jeanne - just the bright, clear rays of the high altitude sun. Everything is stunningly sharp. Everything!
