Great things happen when you are finally old enough, and brave enough, to take a lantern and explore the mountain meadow at night.

Always had something along those lines hanging out of my pockets, when we'd break down camp it always took a lot of coaxing from Mom and Dad to turn loose my weekend prize possessions.

Enormous frog! I think I'd have been a bit frightened of that as a child!

It's a mature Western Toad. Our kids called them "tractor toads" because they could push very hard to get out of your hand. Gentle old things. The kids were allowed to pick them up IF they were close to water. If the kids came upon a rambling toad in the dry woods, they were not to touch it. Toads don't always scare, but when they do, they void all their stored-up water. That could be a disaster if they were far from their next drink.
