Camping is great fun. I'm not the first person to observe this. Hiking out for miles, pitching a tent, then sleeping beneath nothing but a thin layer of vinyl between you and the heavens--is nothing short of terrific.
But rarely are tents more fun than when you were a kid. Even better if the tent was set up in the backyard. It was always an unexpected adventure just feet away from the back door. This photo reminded me of how magical tents could be when one is very young.
