Campground Life

People are scarce
Animals are everywhere.
Elk grazing through the campsite
Birds pecking out holes in the trees to make their nests perfect
Ravens patrol for food, cawing to defend their find
Squirrels popping from site to site searching for free morsels.
There is peace as the animals nap under the shade of a pine tree.

Night time
Animals are scarce
People are everywhere.
Pots and pans rattle in dinner preparations
Car alarms go off at random times
Tent poles clank and hammers pound in stakes
Campfires light up and laughter floats across the campground
There is peace as people fall asleep in the shadows of a full moon.
