I loved the descriptive passages. I felt as though I was right there camping with you, or in your corner of the backyard, inhaling the scent of honeysuckle. High points for me were the wonderful descriptions of spaces, from the snow cave to musing about the magic of whole mansions inside your house...and the photographs of Scotty and Athena are gorgeous!
