Circus Sirkus 2016 End of Camp Show Session V


Clowning around in Opening Act Circus Smirkus Session V 2016

The theme for the Session V end of camp show was human evolution. Each act showed some sep forward in society’s evolution — some funny, some serious, and all old in vignettes featuring circus acts.  I’m not going to write much here — I will post a video when it is available — just post some photos from the Circus Smirkus Flickr photo stream, and a couple from the drive home from Vermont to Texas.

I had a great time at camp this year!

Niagara Falls

We drove from Greensboro, Vermont — where the Circus Smirkus camp is located — to Niagara Falls in Buffalo, New York. That’s Toronto, Ontario, Canada you can see on the other side of the falls.

 

Smokey Mountains Tennessee

You don’t see fog rolling up from the valley towards mountain peaks in Texas. Of course, there aren’t any tall mountains in Texas — it’s pretty flat where I live. But you see this a lot in Vermont, Tennessee, and Kentucky. Sometimes it looks like this — a boiling mass of cloudy fog. And sometimes it’s a thin plume of what looks like grayish white smoke. A waitress at a cafe in Tennessee swears that’s why they call them the Smokey Mountains in Tennessee — because early settlers thought the mountains were on fire when they saw the thin tendrils of “smoke” coming up in the trees.
