... of the field, a stile took us into the forrest, a thin strip of mixed vegetation between cattle fields. It seems that, with the exception of the paths, this area of the countryside is left to fend for itself.

I don't suppose there were that many trucks, it just seemed like it after the silent campgrounds we had become used ...

tastes a little different, so the eggs we eat were not the best, so we gave to
the duck. Sure enough it ate every
last crumb, so from there on out we called it “fatty.” We decided to stay at
that campsite one more night. The next day we went to the hot springs. They were hot and awesome. They had three different pools. The first was the coldest the next was
