I know what you mean. I sure miss Elk camp with my brothers. Unfortunately for me, it will never be the same.

I also love the snow out of the wall tent. When I draw my late archery tag, I am going to do my hunt out of a wall tent. Can’t wait

Thanks for appreciating the images.
To Skyvalhunter, the changes won’t affect our choice of location and in fact, the changes may benefit us. We’ve been in this spot for over thirty years, it’s home :)  Aside from from hunting out of state, we'll remain here.
And Bullmoose, not the 111 spur.  There too is a beautiful area though.

The pinging and popping of the wood stove, the hiss of snowflakes hitting the stovepipe or the sound of raindrops on the tent roof - no sweeter lullaby in the world.

Wow Twispriver-  I could have never put it so perfectly. A symphony with each of those sounds are playing in my head at this moment, what music.  Thanks for the gift.
