"Nature is not a place to visit. It is home." – Gary Snyder

 Last weekend Alexander, Sophia, Steve and I went camping.  
Our campsite:

Our goal was to ride a bike path in Wisconsin with 1/4 and 3/4 mile train tunnels.  We ended up riding about 30 miles. The ride provided a lot of variety – cows munching on grass and making loud horn like noises, small towns, forests, and of course, tunnels.  The first time through the tunnels we used flashlights.  The second time through we didn’t.  It was fun relying on our other senses. 



My pretty Sophia.

Steve, who did most of the work on setting up the campsite and getting bikes together!

Whenever I am in nature I always wish it was more of my home and not just a place that is visited.   

*I used one of our photos for my new blog header.  I love using photos on my blog that remind me of happy days.

  1. Deb – I hope you give it a try. Sometimes biking can be painful but other times not. Even when it is, the beauty that surrounds you is worth it.

    Carla, thanks! I hadn't thought of the relationship between RA and the tunnel – very cool!

    Nan, my daughter was scheduled to be in Vermont for a week of camping next week. The camp was closed and she is going to NH instead. I was looking forward to seeing Vermont through her! I know I would love it.
