Little Creatures…


Camping in the wild you will of course share it with its natural inhabitants.. Chipmunks are common in camp, especially if they have been fed by previous campers… many are not afraid to come in and have a bite of breakfast.

One particular night we had mice scurrying around the outside of the tent, but one very persistent fellow would climb up the tent door then slide down to the ground… over and over trying to get to the top.. after about 15 minutes of this I had enough and as I could see his chubby little silhouette I launched him off the tent into the night.  Dan said he had visions of him flying through the air wondering what happened.

One year Dan had a rabbit that was absolutely in love with him… it would circle the camp… over and over just staring at him… gave  me the creeps…

There was always plenty of entertainment around camp…

All things bright and beautiful
All creatures great and small
All things wise and wonderful;
The Lord God made them all…
Hymn 1848 Cecil Alexander
