Can you hear the laughter of little cousins as they dip their toes into the river's edge?
Do your ears pick up the lovely sweet song of the hidden woodthrush, and the harsh call of the stellars jay as he boldly looks for treats at the edge of camp?
As you lay back on your sleeping bag warmed by the sun, do you hear the wind roaring through the tops of the pines, reminiscent of the river's rush over the boulders?
Surrounded by friends and family, can you picture holding your marshmallow out over the coals to roast into a gooey delight?
Maybe you can tell I'm so excited! I'm taking off a whole day Friday to head for the hills! Can't hardly wait at all. It has been a long time since I've done family camping trip... too long.
