Campfire on the Hill

if you have ever read my about page you know that campfires on the hill are a favorite pastime.  while it’s aesthetically pleasing, campfires also have very practical uses. it’s great to have a meal prepared over the fire; especially if it’s food you have grown in your garden or purchased at your local farmers market. as the sun begins to set, the fire can provide warmth when a bit of the evening air dampness and chill begin to set in. as the moon starts to rise and the stars begin to appear, the campfire provides just the right amount of light for viewing  celestial bodies.

a big thank you to bonnie johnson for her awesome fire building skills.

peace.

greetings!

i hope you enjoy this series of photos taken last sunday morning along county road 250 east. it is truly amazing what natural beauty you can find if you just take the time to explore. i’m very happy with the images i was able to capture on this short stretch of road.  

 i hope everyone is having a great summer. it’s been an unusually cool summer here in east central indiana, although, not having to use the air conditioning has been nice. with the cooler temps, the kids and i don’t get over to  summit lake to swim as much i would like to. instead of swimming, i’ve been hiking in the wilber wright fish and wildlife area (please look for a series to be titled ‘morning hike’ in the near future).  something i do know is that the cool, wet weather has been great for the chiggers and other blood thirsty insects! even after applying deep woods off, i’m covered with bug bites :(. it’s just one of the hazards that come with exploring nature :).

what are some of your favorite summer activities?
