Ummmm…. NO

Just about everything that is NOT about my camping experience…

  • staged as he11
  • looks good/ sleeps poorly on dem rocks
  • tiki torches
  • faux Chinese lanterns [and bulky power pak]
  • old railroad lanterns
  • “Paddle faster. I hear banjo music”
  • a firelog tote !!!

Still, a lovely spot, a great view and a nice evening….




Going Artdoors…




To reach Chrysanthemum River
I always follow Ch’ing Gorge Stream
Through the mountains, through
Ten thousand twists and turns—
A fine trip and not a hundred li.
The noise among boulders is tremendous,
The view into pines, serene;
Swirling water chestnut,
Distilled reflections of reeds.
My original mind is unstriving,
A pure, tranquil stream, like that.
I could stay on some big rock slab
Fishing, forever.
