Saturday, November 4
Before leaving Lake Mead Recreation Area to move to our next camp, Reggie, Roger and I take a short hike to view the lake close-up.
I park the Perfect Tow Vehicle and Best Little Trailer at one of the overlooks on Lakeshore Drive. I go around and open the passenger side door.
“You’re gonna’ love this,” I tell the crew as they stand side-by-side on the seat, eagerly awaiting the click of tether to harness and the lift to the pavement.
The sidewalk reaches out to the end of a finger of land providing wheelchair access to the view.
The sun hasn’t been up for long.
We left the campground early after stopping at a spigot in the campground so I could fill up water jugs. Before finishing this task, Sonia, a camper who reads this blog, recognizes the PTV and BLT and comes over to say hello. She keeps it brief as she can see I’m ready to hit the road.
This little hike will have Reg and Rog napping on the way to our next camp!
The clouds block the sun at times making photos dim.
The trail goes down over a series of terraces of rock and gritty soil and sand. We gain a better view of the lake, pale in comparison to the sky.
A lone boater has this end of the lake for himself. No doubt, this being a Saturday, more will join him as the hours go by.
“These rock ledges are fun, aren’t they!”
Off the rock and onto the reddish, sandy soil . . . .
(See the white dots where Reg and Rog are standing.)
Shells! Way up here! These aren’t prehistoric shells from when ocean covered the continent. These are NEW shells . . . .
I look down at the lake..
“The lake used to be way up here,” I say out loud to myself. “Hard to believe but I guess it was. Wow, the lake is LOW.”
We come to a steep drop-off.
Well, we could go over there and make our way down to the water. Gee, I don’t need to be slipping and sliding on those loose rocks . . . .
“Okay, let’s go back. We need to get on the road anyway.”
We take our time on the return.
Let the boys have some fun on the rock.
This rock is like playground equipment to them!
The best buddies play-fight and scamper up and down the rock until they seem to be ready to move along.
We retrace our steps.
When the path goes up, we slow down for photos and more canine fun.
Here’s a challenge — photographing two pups as they climb while keeping the tether from tangling and me from falling off the hill!
“Hold it for a second, guys!”
Roger finds fun wherever he goes . . . and Reggie loves to follow him.
Reminds me of the time Roger showed Reggie the fun of walking on a picnic bench, back in Rogerson, Idaho, when they first met.
The crew pauses at the overlook area.
“Stupid people have to make their mark. Never mind . . . . ”
“That was a great walk, wasn’t it, boys. I’m glad we didn’t rush off. Come on. Let’s go. You can have a drink and take a nap . . .
. . . and before you know it, our home will have a new yard for you to explore.”
