Time for some fun

Our granddaughters visit us about every week in the summer. Here, we are preparing to camp out in the Hytte on the night of the Perseid Meteor Shower.

 

We made the biggest fire ever in our fire pit as the evening cooled. A three sided hut let us sleep with a picture window on the stars. The downside is that bears, mountain lions, coyotes, bobcats and foxes all come out at night looking for food.

 

So, we ate all the food, burned the scraps and food trash so there would be no smells to attract unwanted advances. I put my pitchfork outside the hytte, and kept a sword in the hytte with us. We encountered nothing more than a cold wind that blew up during the night. We huddled down in our sleeping bags and enjoyed our first night out at the mountain hytte.
