We can feel Summer in our bones!


First we will enjoy Spring!  Today is the first calendar day of Spring, Spring!!  Here at Lost Creek we have waited for the first few days of warmth, those hope filled days where we turn our faces to the sun and blink, like animals who hibernate through the long winter!  Wait!!!  That is us, we do hibernate.

We have dreams of driving down hot, dusty roads; through cornfields, past watery ditches, along side meadows of wild flowers.  We have dreams of mailboxes standing sentry at the end of lanes.  We have dreams of warm days and nights, with stars shining outside our tent door, and the sounds of laughter at nearby campfires.
