Most favorite - the sound of loons calling out on the lake early in the morning when your the only one awake in the campground.
Least favorite - the incessant, aggravating yapping of the 4 dachshunds the people 2 pads over from us had at their campsite.

Most favorite... the sound of a campfire crackling.
Least favourite... Peoples music or TV played load enough for the whole campground to hear, because they are sure we all love heavy metal music too..

My favorite - the sound of silence when walking Mindi at 5 AM through the CG.

My least favorite - the sounds of computers, TVs, cellphones, and other electronic devices that disturb the quiet peacefullness of my campsite and surrounding areas.
