Here I am, my last night at the yurt for a little while. This will be the sixth day up here at camp. I am ready to go home, for sure, but I will miss the place. It is hard up here; everything is hard. The ground is 90% rock, almost every tree is a hard wood, no water except what I have to truck in by hand in 5 gallon buckets, the river is ice cold and that is the only place to bathe until I figure out how to get water to the camp next year. Even with all of that, I love it up here. I split enough firewood to heat the yurt for 2-3 years. I did so much work on the road, I actually broke one of the pins on the little tractor that connects the bucket loader to the forks.

My body is dog tired, but my mind is as relaxed as can be. My job requires me to sit behind a computer most of the time, so doing manual labor is like recreation for me these days.

I see a lot of activity going on here this week; looks like I have a bit to catch up on when I get home!

The two dogs (Wimpy and Kip) sleep in a crate just under the yurt because they really like sleeping outside and also because Wimpy still smells a little ripe from his last tangle with a skunk. Last night I snapped these pics of them lol.

Added some pics of the Stone Dam Lake. This is real close to my camp, and I hiked it over the weekend:
