In North American culture, the cabin holds a unique place in our collective consciousness. Enshrined in the best traditions of grass-rooted nostalgia, the cabin symbolizes those bedrock frontier virtues of self-reliance, sturdiness, simplicity, humility and--by inference--honesty. By its very lack of pretension, the cabin connotes a purity of life whose loss we yearn to recall. ~Don Metz~
A HUGE bonus to living in the mountains are the wildlife encounters! One week after the initial sighting of Bambi and his mom, I saw them again this morning!
As you know, the bear took down two of our feeders on the night that we lost Quincy. So now I have to take the feeders down each night so we don't get another rampage! This morning at 6am, I stepped outside to put up the feeders and came upon this lovely scene!
Bambi and his mom were back! Is he the cutest thing EVER?!!! So little! And those spots! Good Golly, you can't help but smile when you see a little one like this!
After playing, yes literally, scampering around on the rock outcropping, he decided he had better rejoin mom...
So off he went in search of her! PS: This is our little "meadow" where we sit on the glider and bench each evening. Mountain living is paradise!!!
