Cabin No. 23

You'll know when you have reached Cabin Number 23.
There will be a smile waiting for you at the window.

Where little houses grow from the camp table.

There is a seat for you and me by the river.

Where we can knit and watch the water roll by.

Hiking deep through prehistoric woods will take us down to the beautiful Clarion River.

My heart shall rest when the day is done.
And I'll welcome the time of my setting sun,
If I only can that woodland goal
Where the fragrance of pine is good for the soul
On the banks of the beautiful Clarion

Oh my! I can smell the peat and hear the crackle of the autumn leaves underfoot as we walk down to the river.
Thank you for this breath of sweet, fresh air!

Pray for me. I broke my camera on my trip to Zion and when I see such beautiful photos like yours in this post... well, I almost covet.

Great job on the photography!

Leigh,
This is a great post. I love it all.
I really love that little mushroom too. We MT girls are coming to sit and knit with you!

Conny said...

Please scoot over a bit on the bench, because apparently you'd have lots of company, the company of your blog readers/knitting friends.

Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful pictures - they are the essence of autumn. :>)
