Shade in the Desert

The Parawing, with it’s unique open-air design, enabled us to enjoy the warmth of the desert, while protecting us from the intense noonday sun. The simple design allowed us to set up the Parawing in even treeless and sandy soil.

After several weeks the gnats made their appearance and we decided to retreat to the more enclosed, yet open and airy, Encore. It had more space than the conventional two-person tent, and Mom and Dad were able to sleep calmly without worry of crushing co-adventurer Alison Teal Blehert Koehn, age three weeks, or any of her potentially ‘uncomfortable’ toys and ‘equipment.’ After years spent in smaller tents, it was a joy to luxuriate in such spaciousness. Like all Moss products, and even in the worst of spring storms, it set up faster than a hungry baby could cry.
