Spring Camping in the Northwoods

Is there anything as satisfying as a warm fire on a cool Spring morning just hangin' out with your brother in the Northwoods? This was our very first Spring camp out and man was it ever uplifting!

The quiet of the woods...The damp chill in the air...The Trilliums bursting forth like newborn babies. The creek was running and gurgling down to the pond in the meadow and the wildlife was everywhere.

Dan and I hiked all over the land on this trip and explored alot of the same areas that Dad and I had discovered. We even found a couple of deer-stands that Dad and I missed previously. There was abundant evidence of wild berries growing up there as well.

Aside from getting a bit wet when the tent failed us, it was an altogether satisfying trip.
