Happy 4th of July (almost)!  With the holiday falling on a weekend, I would imagine that even more than the usual number of people will be filling campgrounds across the nation.  Unfortunately, I will not be among them.  But since I have to stay home, I thought I’d spend some time admiring some beautiful camp…
