“I wonder what this Minersville Lake Campground is like,” I muse as I sit in my lounger studying the Utah Benchmark atlas. Reggie tips his head with curiosity. “Seems like I looked that up once. It’s a county campground. Let’s check it out! You want to do that?”
Bridget and Reggie jump up in response and soon we are motoring on Route 153 into Beaver.
I click a photo from the driver’s seat of the Perfect Tow Vehicle as the turkeys cross the road ahead of us and wander onto someone’s lawn.
On our way out of town we pass a canine gymnast on break.
“You’ll not get a 10 that way!”
They’re probably wondering where we will stop for their walk. We’re in the habit of driving to different places in order to put variety into walk-time.
“Don’t worry. I’ll give you a chance to walk around before we go back to camp. I want to stop for photos along the way to the campground. Like this interesting house up ahead.”
We cross a mix of state land, county land, private land, and Bureau of Land Management land.
“We’re almost there, guys. I see the sign . . . .”
We stop at the entrance booth and I read the signs. (Click on photos to enlarge.)
“Well, we won’t be taking our walk here!”
A drive-through will suffice.
Of course, the reservoir’s water level is very low.
Only two campers are here.
“Okay! Okay! We can’t walk here. I know where we can go . . . .”
We pull out of the campground and backtrack to a dirt road that goes to the reservoir.
In the distance several water fowl and song birds enjoy the absence of people and the abundance of . . . .
It’s funny how Reggie and Bridget have become accustomed to frequent stops for me to take pictures. They stand absolutely still and wait. When the camera comes away from my face, they move. It reminds me of the children’s game of “Freeze.” Such good pups.
Bridget lags behind.
She thinks this will prevent me from taking photos of her. Not so, little girl!
I don’t find any. Not that I want to camp here in all this brush and with flying insects down by the muddy shore. Nice place to visit, but I wouldn’t want to live here!
I put down a bowl of water for my thirsty explorers and they happily drink. I toss them into the PTV and they sleep as we roll across the sage toward home.
