My beloved and I are spending a relaxing weekend in the mountains. Larry is taking a fly-fishing class and I'm enjoying some geocaching, hiking, reading and just getting away. We are in the Sawtooth Mountains and enjoying every minute of it.
We are camping in a Yurt about 20 miles north of Ketchum. Yurts are really quite cozy - even comes with a skylight!
The place has all the rustic appeal of wilderness camping with a bit more convenience...no tent to set up or equipment to haul. Just bring food, sleeping bag and a change of clothes and you are good to go.
It's actually pretty nice to be sleeping on a cushioned platform rather than the rocky ground. This is what I call baby bear camping. Not too hard. Not too soft. JUST RIGHT.
The propane camp stove works great - we brought fresh squash from our garden and some kielbasa sausage....YUM!
Of course, camping means high class facilities.
Regardless of what Freud may have theorized,this is the ONLY time I get penis envy.
