Surroundings

I feel really lucky that we live in a place where one moment I can be at home in the middle of a busy city, enjoying the light of the evening sun...









and an hour and a half later, have a tent pitched and a campfire burning along a beautiful river in a secluded campground. This weekend we spent the night on the Clackamas River. And we dipped in the hot springs that bubble up along its banks. Summer of camping is on.

what a lovely sequence of photos. I'm lucky---in a different but not dissimilar way---to live in a fascinating valley desert, but just an hour up Catalina Highway and I'm in a deep pine and fir forest. It's harder to go camping, though, when you've got to lug along a kid and a dog. We haven't been in years. Looks like fun.

Nice! We did camping too. But we drove a lot further!
