We have been asked sooooo many times "Why would you spend a couple of nights in a Yurt?" Simple answer is because we never had before. Home, funky, home for two nights. Yurt ( photo / image / picture from toni's Garden ) The skylight with a view... Skylight, wish it had been snowing ( photo / image / picture from toni's Garden ) I thought we had taken photos of all the inside but I guess not. The wall all the way around looks like this. The brown rectangles are windows that are covered up. To the left are the heater, small air conditioner and a small night stand with drawers. To the right is a bunk bed and then the mini refrigerator and a microwave. The purple thing next to the Futon is a cool drawer I found at a junk shop the first day. Inside of Yurt ( photo / image / picture from toni's Garden ) Our truck and Yurt with Ashe juniper trees with really cool looking trunks.

Chicken Fried Steak, mashed potatoes, both with a good covering of cream gravy and green beans...which would have tasted better with a good covering of cream gravy too. Chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes and green beans ( photo / image / picture from toni's Garden ) The first night being cold and rainy we heard the wind and rain all night. The second night was clear as a bell and every time I woke up during the night I could hear Coyotes howling in the distance and early in the morning I heard the cattle at a farm next to the state park lowing in the distance wanting to be fed.
