Mikey’s 4H Camp Pictures

Ok, here are a few pics of Mikey at 4H Camp this past week.  Katie was there too but unfortunately her counselors and adult advisers haven’t sent pictures.  So, I guess that means Mikey gets all the spotlight this time around.

Camp Brule is located near the “thriving metropolis” of Shunk in Sullivan County.  Last year while driving there I almost hit a bear and her cub, a doe (two different times), and a flock of turkeys.  This year I only had an encounter with one bear and one doe.  The drive there is just beautiful if you are a nature/outdoors kind of person. 

I am also posting some wildlife photos.  Our neighbor recently saw a bear and a cub (last year’s cub) crossing our pasture.  Just about every night during milking chores we see a doe and her fawn at the end of our one goat pasture.  Not too long ago Mikey and Katie came across a fawn sleeping in the tall grass of our fields.  Scared the crap out of him and Katie (and the fawn too!).  There are also a group of 3 bucks running together in the area.  I about whacked them with the car one day.

Anyway, the pics will give you a glimpse of why we love living here!
