Last weekend was the annual Crary Camp in Gaines, Pa. The group was small this year, but we had great fun. It’s a little scary to find a crew as crazy as my native clan, but nice to feel so comfortable being with them. We biked the rail trail along a meandering stream and stumbled on what I believe is a timber rattlesnake, sunning just at the edge of the trail. A few minutes later we saw these three deer splashing and playing in the stream. The butterfly – a red admiral – didn’t want to open his wings long enough for me to capture his beautiful orange-red markings, but I got a decent picture anyway. The cascade across the river from camp was so intriguing I had to include it as well. Looking forward to camp next year – and our trip to Michigan next week!
