Y is for yurt.
A few years ago, (seems like yesterday) we gathered the youngsters for a ski tour to a yurt. (There are several in the Uinta Mountains, all maintained by the Forest Service.)
The yurt, yellowish in color, is way up yonder in the mountains. Yipes, there is an outhouse about 20 yards away -- if you have a yen for every modern convenience, this yurt would not be your accommodation choice. A wood-burning stove -- primitive but handy -- provides heat and a stove for cooking up yummy treats.
Inside this structure, composed of heavy canvas on a frame, we spun yarns and played games until we yawned and yielded to sleep.
We stretched out on clean, dry bunk beds. No one yelped or yammered in complaint about yet another family trip.
Yes, we have good memories of our cozy stay in a yurt.
