Fire Me Up

A return to the abandoned Camp Yakewi (May 2016) — clockwise, from top left: swimming pool, home of every swimming and CPR bead; Pioneer Lodge, site of December 1979 winter survival camping; Dining Hall; inside Pioneer lodge — the fireplace that kept us warm and fed; youth bunkhouses in lower meadow. Many thanks to my cousin Anne and her husband Gerry for braving the overgrowth to explore this old stomping ground with me.
