Queer Camp was another destination along my summer bicycle loop.
Intense, with lots of workshops, dancing, gathering, mingling.
A weekend of gay community in the woods, at a retreat center.
Nice way to end my bicycle tour. People, all scrunched together in cabins, dining hall and so forth. Quite a change after being mostly alone on the road during previous weeks.
Rain was intense also. Seeing the forecast on line, I got an extra large tarp to put over my tent; rather than giving up on my tent and staying in one of the cabins. It stayed mostly dry.
Several carloads of folks from Bellingham came down for Camp. I got a ride back to Bellingham by car. First bike trip that I returned by car. On other trips, I've come back by train, bus or biked back. Our car qualified for the carpool lanes. It was a car full of stories and reflections from Camp.
Now I'm sorting my pictures and stories from both Camp and the rest of my bike tour before Camp.
Everything from the Pullman Lentil Festival to Queer Camp.
Stay tuned. It will take a few weeks to digest things.
Aprox. 3 minutes.
