"This hillside cabin of yours has

dispelled all our desire to see points

further east. Climbed Camel's Hump

yesterday, our introduction to the

Green Mountains – the beauty is over-

whelming. Ate our picnic on a sunny

ledge at 3000 feet. Five miles up a Vermont

mountain is very different from the same

distance on an Illinois flatland! I am now

sharing my spot in the sun on your shoreline

rocks with about twenty napping caterpillars.

When they are activated by the wind they

only roll over into more comfortable positions."

2020 Jacqueline Jackson
