To Peek at the Mountains
"The sky's looking a little creepy."
Madre, me, and Silkworm all went upstate New York for a couple nights this week. The first night was spent tent camping at a KOA in the muggy buggy high 90's heat, and the second was spent in a hotel bed waiting out a nasty thunderstorm. We had to leave early this morning to keep from getting caught in Hurricane Arthur.
Otherwise, upstate was gorgeous. We were sad we didn't get to see any waterfalls because we couldn't take the mosquito population in the woods (and we never ever wear bug spray), but the mountains were enough. We've been surrounded by flat land and beaches for essentially our entire lives. Sometimes, you just gotta see how the other half lives.
(And I think we've concluded, we're just fine and dandy with how we live.)
