Every couple of months missing the llamas comes around and I see a picture that makes me smile.  This was the spring we started training the girls to be professional packers as well.  I was lucky enough to get to work with them at the beginning and then with each of them on guided trips as well!

I love when you pick up a random book at the library and  find new connections and ideas.  Beautifully written book.  I am excited to open another one.

A day at home with a "sick" toddler has turned into another day of experimenting in the kitchen.  Sage oatcakes, candied ginger, and beef lentil soup are on today's menu.  You can make a living off of cooking and adventuring right??? #fromthekitchen #sage #cookies #homemade #full #food #makeyourown #experiment #madewithlove
On our last big road trip Marta went to bed almost every night in her own. She would grab her Luci light (@lucilights) and head to the tent to curl up in her sleeping bag and "read" her book.  The dogs would follow her in and curl up around her leaving me and my husband to ourselves around the fire.

Marta has now seen almost as many adventures as that little old Patagonia coat.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep, 
But I have promises to keep, 
And miles to go before I sleep, 
And miles to go before I sleep.

The views that make the early wake up calls worth it.

Sometimes you see little summations of life hidden in everyday scenes.  Here we have the last of our herbs from the garden, the bone saw Bojan used last night to clean the elk he and a neighbor harvested, a bag of juniper berries drying after we collected them, an empty bottle of rum, and Marta's unicorn pumpkin from Halloween.  Add a dog bone and some skis outside and you have the Mitkovski's in a nutshell.

As snow falls around us getting us ready for another dose of winter I can still feel the warm sands of the coral dunes of Utah.

Last of the fresh garden goodies for the season.  A mix of a few of the hardier herbs that survived a couple of snows in our absence.

It's inevitable that we fall in love with each new wild place we visit.  Sandstones, canyons, delicate desert plants and animals, and a unique native culture captured our hearts and urges us to learn about those new places.  May I never tire of exploring.
