    not sure why, but that looks as if it could be a mommy and dan tent…add a few candles a bottle of wine, a sleepover for the young ‘uns….. just a thought….

    have a great weekend!

    A comment might break the peace…

    I can smell the tang of the pines, hear the soughing of their branches, the soft padding of footfall on the path. A bird calling here and there, the heat of the day as the sun rises across the edge of the cliffs. And the silence, in spite of the natural sounds of the mountain top.

    Wish I was there.

      My thoughts exactly, though I couldn’t have expressed them so beautifully.

      Rachel, only your family would take a deer skin rug camping. I love it. Happy weekend!

        Actually, it was a surprise. Dan set it up. It was my birthday – so an extra special touch from a thoughtful guy.

    That makes me want to crawl right in with a good book and an iced latte. Love that it’s camping time!

      Dan tans all the hides of the deer and elk he kills, traditional style…with brains and liver and some serious labor. He’s working on an elk hide right now, maybe I’ll share a bit about it in an upcoming post.

    Love the juxtaposition of nylon and hide.

    Um, I totally love how *deer skin rug* is a posting category. Can’t wait to go camping. We have plans in a few weeks. It’ll really feel like summer then.
