Hello again!! Fresh from a few days at a lakeside cabin, here are some fun vintage outfit posts. First up, my own attempt to emulate the glam-pers I posted about earlier this summer, with the aid of a pair of vintage riding breeches (As I was wearing this outfit, I was also flooded with memories of the four long years I once spent writing a doctoral dissertation related to women mountaineers in the 19th and early 20th centuries, so this outfit actually is kind of a tribute to the intrepid women I studied--although few of the earlier "lady alpinists" ever wore trousers, at least not in view of the climbing hut or chalet). I digress: The photos below my outfit photo capture evidence of some of the "wildlife" encountered: on the left, huge holes bored into a tree by the most gigantic woodpecker I have ever glimpsed. I caught this avian giant working on the tree after I had returned from a morning canoe ride. Alas, he flew off before I could get my camera, so, the story of Big Red, as I called him, remains a legend to those who didn't see him with their own eyes. At right, a sign spied at a roadside rest stop on the way to the cottage. Thankfully, I didn't see any snakes so there was no need for braking!
