For the next few days, we'll have a new temporary home... amongst the trees. And while its rather cramped and damp, we have come to enjoy it's earthy feel and frequent earthworm encounters. Backward, is the most appropriate way to enter.
Don't put it past us - both of us, as kids tried to dig secret hideouts into the ground. An hour or so digging with garden trowels and spoons, as you can imagine, left us with luxurious 1' x 4" holes in the topsoil....Just large enough to twist an ankle in after they had been forgotten about a week later.
We're actually headed to camp in the Redwoods for awhile. Somehow, within the past six months, we never realized we were within a days drive from them!
Plenty of picture sharing will ensue once we're back.
We'll bring the photos, you bring the smores.
On a side note - We enjoyed the company of this seemingly toupee wearing moth the other evening as we were preparing dinner in the kitchen. After a few oohs and ahhhs from us - he was scooped up and let outside. Any entomologists out there who can tell us this guys name?
