And Happy Spring to everyone down under.
This is for The Three Muses weekly art challenge. This week's theme is BACK TO NATURE. When I think of nature I think of camping so my collage turned out to be more of a scrapbook page that includes a photo from my very favorite camping trip ever.
Three years ago we went camping at Big Sur (California) in November. It was absolutely beautiful. The ground was covered with a blanket of fallen leaves in all the gorgeous shades of autumn. It was cool and quiet since less people camp in the fall. The nights are cold and perfect for gathering around a glowing campfire. There's nothing I love more than being nestled in a dark forest of towering redwood trees, looking up at the stars until I can't keep my eyes open any longer then climbing into a great big tent and listening to the crickets sing all night long. And later the smell of crisp smoky morning autumn air when you climb out of your tent just after dawn to light another campfire.....pure bliss.
