The Camp

Posted on: July 4th, 2013 by danielcclark@gmail.com No Comments

It’s 4:30 am and I can’t sleep. I listen to the noises outside the tent. I slept well. I notice that I don’t feel tired at all. The curiosity of the outdoor rustlings pursue my mind.

There is a crescent moon that is bright. It hovers over the tents. The decision to build a fire was easy to make. It’s cold.

I didn’t prepare firewood prior to deciding to camp. I knew we had a few big limbs in the bottom. That is at the bottom of the land. It was a 300 yard walk. I found the tree trim hand saw and headed out.

When I returned there were five three inch logs ready to burn. I found a small limb with dead leaves which I used to reignite the coals from the night before.

Coffee was boiling not long after. The smell of it all makes me love the out doors.

Pleasant morning.
