Extremes

Mutt and I did some camping in extremes this year. January in northern Michigan brought the -6, and for the record, the photo shows -6 because it was too cold to get out of the sleeping bag till long after daylight. The temp recorded on Laren's cabin that night was -12. The 102 was in San Antonio last month. I would definitely prefer. -6 to 102, any day.

The last thing you see

I have posted a few times about the joy of not sleeping in houses, and the first thing you see when you wake outside of walls....

This photo is the sunset from my hidey hole on the hill at the farm. Although the moon and stars are the final thing I see, the image of the fire in the west stays with me a long time.
