this is a yurt
"a mongolian-style round tent,
on a wooden deck, equipped
with a cooking stove, refrigerator,
table, chairs, bunk beds,
deck, picnic table,
and fire ring."
what more could you want...
a place to hide out for a week,
go off the grid,
live by my own rules.
and get in touch with my soul
the campground is in keystone state park
which is about a 40 drive from me
when we were kids,
our parents took us there in the summer
to swim in the lake.
when i grew up i took my kids...
Keystone is a place you can go
where NO ONE cares what you look like
in a bathing suit...
where your kids can run free...
and it's surrounded by amazing nature !
we have our family reunion there every year...
the nature alone is worth the trip
but there's also a great history,
which i find interesting
this lake was manmade back in 1909
the water was used to cool coal
used to make steel
the state acquired it in 1945 and turned
it into a park
there are hiking trails everywhere,
(saw a ton of deer,
but they were too quick for me)
it's like a great patina !!
yes..i hike in a skirt??
it's all i have for summer..
and i get to wear my fave boots !
(i'm getting ready for country living fairs !!)
you can either think i'm nuts...to go away alone,
or you wish you were me....
all i can say is..
it works for me..
