Papa Rich took the morning shift in the sugar bush while Rufus edited video and I worked on writing projects for Driftless Area Magazine. It was a relief to have a morning of physical rest, but by mid-afternoon, I was ready to stretch my legs and we hiked down to cover the second shift of sugaring. We threw wood down the hill, stoked the fire, pumped sap into the boiler, and buttoned up camp for the night… our labor of love for saccharine goodness.
