Here is some terrible news: the camping trip was WONDERFUL! It turns out that Clover had great weather, beautiful trails, delicious food, fabulous scenery, and not a single mosquito bite during her stay with the humans in North Cascades National Park. I retract my offer to stay home alone, and demand an immediate do-over plus mule.
FarmWife says I wouldn't have been allowed there, anyway, and that I wouldn't have fit in the sleeping bag with her and Clover. She also says they will try to find a livestock campground next time so that I may go too, and that I will be in charge of carrying the sleeping bags and tents.
