Johnny B's Tipis

Johnny lived in several tipis over the years, one up at the Harvard Camps, one in southwest North Carolina(the white one), and one in Celo, NC, where he lived for four years at the base of Mt Mitchell and the Black Mountains(bottom fotog). The Celo camp was especially nice as it was in a community of friendly old hippies and next to a fast flowing, clean-water creek. I would often camp here in my tent next to his tipi and we would visit Joe Hollis and his Mountain Gardens up the hill a ways. Joe had full moon drumming nights where I got to play my soprano saxophone while a dozen drummers played around the fire.
