Camping! Did you camp? I certainly went camping often as Minnesota is full of lovely state parks. When I was growing up the rule was if we camped two nights, and the third night we could go to a motel with a pool. We visited many states. I also went to camps. It used to be camp meant outside in nature with outhouses, but things have changed. My daughter went to "cheerleader camp" by staying in a dorm at the University of Minnesota. Concrete camp! I never liked day camp much and thought overnight camp was much nicer. What do you remember about camping? Or did your family camp in hotels! Some people do not care for tent camping. Maybe you have an RV or vehicle in which there is room to sleep? At any rate, I hope many people have some memories or creative writing ideas for this theme. 

Did you ever camp in winter? I never choose to do that, myself. But some people think it is fun. Bob Fisher of Wayzata, MN, holds a winter camping event to raise money and awareness for the homeless. A recurring quote after such a night is that people are glad it is over. Of course, for the homeless, that is not true. Whatever your memory, this picture might inspire a writing piece.

There are those who travel to get away from the lights of a city and view the stars. Whatever travel or arrangements you might have made to view stars without light pollution, this image may inspire some writing thoughts. Carl Sagan says we are made of stars

Have you ever seen the Northern Lights? It is an amazing experience. We could see them when we lived in Grand Marais, Minnesota. An app would call our phone. Many times we were too tired to get up and look as we lived on a side of Sawtooth Mountains (only in MN is a mountain a mere 2300 feet high). Eagle Mountain is the highest natural point in Minnesota, United States, at 2,301 feet. Don't laugh though, MN also has the highest latitude in the contiguous USA. Brr! Northern lights are visible in many other places, as well.

Do you kayak or canoe? If so you may have been able to get very close to some natural wonders which would be interesting to write about!

Bonfires and campfires offer special experiences for roasting marshmallows and singing. Perhaps you have a  special memory of such an experience.
