A few days before this camping trip, I had an MRI on my brain. The neurologist is trying to figure out the cause of my intense headaches, dizziness, and vertigo. I was glad Kevin and I were able to go on this camping trip because the place just makes you rest and relax with all the beauty. This picture grabs me in a lot of ways. I see the colors of Autumn starting to pop out. The trees are reaching towards the sky, some straight and some bent from the weight of snow when it was a young sapling. I see a stream slowly meandering down the mountain yet reflecting what is seen above it. I see a road and wonder where it leads. I see a missing bridge and puzzle at what it might have been made out of.

When we pulled into the campground, the camp host said we had reserved a site but he thought we would like a different one. He said to have a look at both. Well, he was absolutely correct. The one he suggested was off the road, very large, and bordered along the water.

On one of our walks we found this bit of history.

This small section is called “Mini Bryce Canyon”.

Kevin adds: While camping, our neighbor was trying out various boondocking things. His solar panels were not charging his devices very well. I wanted to test out my new generator, so we combined forces. My generator got some run time, and he got his devices charged. I like our generator. It does a great job. The only problem is that it is LOUD. It is especially loud in an idyllic location like we were in. I might not have minded so much if were were in a very remote location, and not a campground.

Back to Charla: there is just something about old fences that makes me want to capture them in photography. This photo is from our campsite looking at the water. A very enjoyable place to be.
