I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in. ~ John Muir

After a little back and forth, we got our tree yesterday.  Mike is covered, nose to knees, in poison ivy.  He had intrepidly brought home two loads of wood, one with some suspicious vines on a couple logs.  Bless his heart.  We won't burn those, of course.  With his hands covered in a rash, we thought of waiting, but there's not much time left.

Mountain Magic Tree Farm

On we went.  We needed to get out.
Laurel's nap was too short and it has just been a hard week around here.

Running in the Trees

Apart from feeling a little cold, everyone felt so much better being away from home.
The Mountain Magic tree farm is tucked into a little valley on a gravel road.  Ideal.

The Boys

I think it healed something in all of us to be out there among the fir trees.
It is raining heavily today, or I would take us away from here again.
There is something to be gained in being content at home, too.

UPS on a Farm

And here's something many might not see--a UPS truck driving over a cattle guard.
Oh, and don't even get me started on the sunset we got to witness while Mike tied the tree to the car.

Oh how yucky about the poison ivy! We don't have poison oak here on our property (or even much on the island where we live -- I've seen a few specimens in the forest, but not much). But in the wider area, it's so prevalent, and I am so afraid of any of us getting exposed!

Glad your outing was healing!

Roan has it too, we've figured out. :-( The outing was healing and I hope that making our spiral today will continue the mood.

A Blessed Wilderness

It was just like being in heaven, being in there. In those days there was no road. The park was all a blessed wilderness. I have often thought what a wonderful people we would have been if we had wanted to keep it that way.
