The crew and I leave Arizona and enter Utah!
It’s time to stop oohing and aahing and look for the sign!
The campground road winds down into a canyon through which the San Juan flows.
We camped here last year so I’m familiar with the sites.
Our former site by the river has been dramatically altered with the removal of trees and the addition of boulders. I assume this is an effort to shore up the river bank. Until nature works her wonders on the bare ground, the site doesn’t appeal to me.
I drive around the loop.
I pick up a payment envelope at the kiosk, and, continuing around the loop, I find a spacious site under the bare branches of cottonwood trees.
“Hey, nutcakes! Let’s go for a walk!”
Bridget and Spike enthusiastically sniff the ground along the campground road.
I pause to reacquaint myself with the river.
Later, sitting outside reading my Paperwhite, I look up and watch the light from the late afternoon sun as it paints a glow on the bluff across the river.
That’s the sign of a very full day — when morning seems like ages ago. It’s fun to be moving again.
NOTE: Due to weak internet signal, I’ve fallen behind in my posts. As I type this, tomorrow is Easter Sunday. I wish all my readers the joy of that special day!
I appreciate every purchase.
