Oh, The Joys Of Campfire Cuisine

In our most recent zine, I wrote about the art of campfire cooking. There’s oh so much to be said about it, and maybe I’ll save that for a later date. For now, I’ll share something I made this weekend, on an overnight hike through Elizabeth Furnace in George Washington National Park.
