Winter Camping




Christmas holidays are being celebrated right here on the Salmon River in White Bird, Idaho.  The weather has been wonderful and I am getting in my long walks along the river every morning.

I did a little trailer decorating in my Bigfoot (17.5ft) with sweet little gifts mostly made by friends.  Lucky me.  




The scenery can't be beat.




I am heading home to Washington today to play with my Grandsons....yay.  But I will be back next week for our real Christmas celebration.  Stop in again and I will share some more pictures with you.

Thankfulness




Fall is the time of year when harvests are being gathering all around us.  Plenty for all.  Storing up for winter and the leaner times....at least that was the way.  Now days with transportation and the internet we can have anything we want or need at the drop of a hat, in season or out.  

Does this make us less grateful?  It sure makes life easier.  And the bounty can be shared a lot faster and conveniently.  Has it made us complacent?  Almost demanding?  Do we ever think about how difficult it was back in the day?  Do we give thanks for our abundance?  

As we gather around our Thanksgiving tables, please take a moment to be thankful for all our bounty.  We are truly blessed in this country.

Misty Mornings




These days are filled to the brim and overflowing.  A few days camping and setting up Winter Camp and now the business of being home is catching up with me.  And the holidays are arriving shortly.  

Are you knee deep too?

Winter Camp






Once again it's time for winter camping on the Salmon River here in Idaho at White Bird.






The views are always stunning.






But there is a profound sadness this year, as we lost a dear camping friend just a week before our meetup.  My heart is very heavy but I am fortunate that we camped together a lot and just recently.  I will miss her terribly.
