Sometimes you have to think about summer just to get the chill out of your bones. We’ve had sunshine the past few days but it is nothing compared to the warmth of the summer sun. As the sun rises earlier and sets later it’s difficult to not think about summer when the days last forever and the nights are short. Even so the days past quickly especially ones when you’re camping in the Boundary Waters. Until I can lay on a granite ledge and soak up the warmth from the rock and the sun above I’ll have to settle for the fire in the woodstove and images of summer in my mind.
