Zac, Daniel, my family and I camped here last night. ( July 16 )  Lorin and Vicki came out for supper and Dad and Lorin cooked.    We started the permanent fire pit.

Oh what a beautiful morning!

And the work begins.  We had just gotten started and the photographer from the Topeka Capital Journal stopped by.  The article appeared in the July 20 paper.

Moving these logs is not easy but after trying different things, the best way to get the poles where you need them is muscle.
