On my walk yesterday I went to the water tank on top of a hill overlooking the campground. A great view of the place, however I didn't have my camera with me. So, this morning I took my backup camera (a Nikon D200 with the 18 - 200 zoom lens that weighs much less than the D700 with its f: 2.8 lens) and hiked back up to the tank for a photo. I included a close up of my site as well as a wide angle view that shows the near by part of the Imperial Dam area.

As long as I had the camera, I decided to take some general photos of the campground for those that have not been here & might be interested. First, the golf course. Yes, there is one, although it is not like most. No grass, and only a few holes (all of which are larger than normal) but there is a group that plays every morning.

I also included photos of the greeting signs, the water fill area, the dumpsters (the only ones in the campground, so it is a 1/2 mile hike to them from the trailer), the four dump stations, the office, the outdoor showers, the bulletin board, and my favorite stop, the Liberry. As with all my trips, there was a wedding in the campground (well, the reception - the weddings took place in another section). The reception was in the Gravel Pit Ramada.

That is about it for the day. A bit cooler (it went down to 48°F last night) and cloudy - my batteries never quite got back to full.

Dinner will be a chicken thigh & snap peas.

Until tomorrow -
