We found a very nice spot next to the trees with a nice view of the hills. A nice private site. The road through the camp continues on to the Senator Wash Dam but you can't drive it. The LTVA area ends not too far further up the road from our site.
I got the solar panels up and our chairs and table out just before it started to rain. Didn't do much, just settle the dust some.
Lou fixed chicken, steamed broccoli and cauliflower with Spanish rice for dinner. A real microwave dinner. How did old time campers ever survive with out a microwave? We enjoyed listening to The Prairie Home Companion radio show during dinner.
Nice to be home.
When Lou stepped outside later in the evening after dark she was surprised by something big moving around by our chairs.She flashed the light over and scared the burros away.They didn't go far, and evidently were as surprised as she was. It was a small contingent of the greeting committee, I'm sure.
Sunday: (02/28) Another dose of breakfast burritos this morning. I tinkered at the computer for a while while Lou walked up the hill to make a phone call.
We packed a fannypack with lunch and water and took a hike. We started with a look for the beaver in the small pond up the road from our camp. Possibly too late in the day since we didn't see them but their dam is still working well.
We also looked around the campground below the Senator Wash Dam by Squaw Lake. There must have been a Porta-bote convention there as there were five tied up by the water line. They look like a nice boat and easy to cart around when folded.
We continued around the back side of Senator Wash Reservoir and back home. Nice walk. Lou's knee held up to the walk. Last year she wasn't able to take the walk with her bad knee which I ruined for her on an earlier walk that trip.
When we got back to camp it was time for rice pudding and beer, in that order, not mixed. We enjoyed watching all the birds drop by for a song and the squirrels playing around.
Lou prepared sausage and lima beans for dinner.
