August 22.21: Lost & Found

Roadtrip!!! The three-day drive to Regina for SWS #22 is filled with all kinds of tiny adventures: walks in the woods, small town explorations, tree climbing, village campgrounds, pottery pitstops, glorious moonrises and an episode with a lost backpack that had the whole town of Grand Forks, BC joining in on the search… Special thanks […]
