I took a walk in the woods and came out taller than the trees.
Henry David Thoreau

TIME:  Morning
PLACE:  Camp
SUBJECT:  Hiking Views

We woke up to more rain this morning.
The girls were supposed to do some archery, but it was too wet.
We went on a (muddy) hike instead.

The girls called this area “The Desert”
Massive rocks covered the ground.
Once we re-entered the forest though, mud was the name of the game.

An old root cellar was found.

The roof had collapsed and it was filled with water.

This graniteware pot was near the cellar, a spot of blue among the green and brown.

The trail ended on the main camp road.
We saw a turtle making his way across.
He hid when we caught up to him.

On the way back to our camp, we passed the cabooses where the Cadettes were staying.
Stella had the option to camp here, but she stayed in these last fall and wanted to try the tree houses this time.
Of course, as we were leaving, the sun came out.
