This is what I usually see when I get back from my morning round of RR cleaning. This morning was a little hazy. I liked the way that the trees are silhouetted with the sun coming up behind Lick Observatory.
However, ( Warning!!!!! Here comes a short Rant.)
Below is a picture of what I found when I rounded a curve in the road in one of the campsites. The night before, someone dumped all this trash. For the life of me, it is hard to understand why anyone would be so disrespectful of a beautiful public campground. I know that there is a charge to take things to the public landfill, but really why go out of your way to come into the park to do it. It’s just offensive! Bruce, Maintenance supervisor tells me that sometimes it is cultural. When asked why they do it some say “ My grandfather did it, my dad did it and I do it.” It’s about time that someone should break the cycle and dispose of rubbish properly.
Enough said! Change of subject.
While cleaning the RR’s I found this Leopard If it looks strange, it’s because it’s head got squashed between the door and door jam. Just another CG casualty.
Every now and again we get the large four legged camper. This horse was grazing in the pasture early in the morning. His owner allowed me to take pictures and gave her some extra feed so that I could capture her blue eye. She has one blue and one brown.
I really like this picture with the morning sun.
These were taken on Saturday morning. The rest of the morning was spent taking pictures of the race event. This one wasn’t a fund raiser, but of a local group that does races and hikes all over the bay area. Someone said that there is one somewhere every other weekend. For this one they expected 3 or 4 hundred participants, nowhere near the last mud run. They too do it every year here in the park.
The cars just kept on coming in
and the racers kept on running.
Some of the racers came in Friday night to camp before the race and a few of the stayed until Sunday, however the CG was nowhere near full this weekend. Since Labor Day weekend, things are slowing down a lot.
Now is when maintenance starts their various projects. A week ago a water pipe broke near the RR by me, so there is no water below the RR. Quite a few campers have requested to change sites closer to water and fortunately we were able to accommodate them. This is Ruben and Jeremy working on the water source in the equestrian CG. It was really hot. I really appreciate these guys.
I hope that you all are having a great week.
Thanks for visiting
