Can you hear that? It’s the sound of water trickling over the rocks. Tree leaves brushing up against each other in the wind. Water rushing over the stone wall cliff into the stream below. Bushes rustling with movement as a critter passes through. Birds singing among the tops of tree limbs. Chirping insects having conversations in the darkness. The crackling of the fire as it’s sparks fly into the night sky.
Can you see that? The moon is placed far in the distance peeking out from behind a cloud. Stars twinkle high in the sky like the grains of sand in number. Yellow eyes of a mysterious animal peers from behind the slope. Shadows dance across the ground as the trees sway in the wind.
Can you feel that? The light breeze as it flows across your skin. The warmth of the fire as it heats your body. The peace of the night. The calmness that surrounds you. The solitude of the mountain.
Camping. Oh how I miss it.
