I've been eager for fall for weeks now. But all of the sudden I'm craving sunshine and warmth for a few more weeks... fall can wait. We all know what comes after.... shiver.

In short: AMAZING.
We canoed, hiked, stargazed, ooh'd and ahh'd a lot, ate toasted marshmallows, read, knit, laughed, joked, slept in a tent, sat around a campfire, heard moose, saw quail, didn't see moose or bear, made new friends, and then canoed and hiked some more. It was SUCH fun! It was your typical camping experience, really, but everything was just right and magical in a simple way. We cannot wait to go back for more next year.
The air was crisp, the sun was warm, the water was crystal clear, the trees were huge, the quiet was wonderful. The best part? No cell phone service!

I snapped this photo the morning that we left Iowa... June 25. It was a stunning morning... that drive between Edgewood and Dubuque. Stacia, I know you know it well. It's just so beautiful. The rolling hills, the low fog on the fields, the sunrise, the quiet. Ahhh, Iowa. I might be having a love affair with Maine, but you'll always be home sweet home.
