This huge tree fell near the employee parking lot at the admin office some time in the past. It was cut so they could clear the area, but left this giant ponderosa skeleton laying there. I love the natural patterns in the log.
At the entrance to our park, there is a sign we put up in the window when all the campsites are sold, that says “Campground Full”. That sign has been in the window every day since the park opened in May. Several people who came through the gate yesterday asked me if the campground was really full, because they could not believe there would actually be people camping in weather that cold. Yes, there were quite a few hardy souls out there, camping in tents. Me, give me a travel trailer with central heat, thank you.
The forecast for today at the North Rim was “Cold & Windy, 40% chance of snow. The high was 38 and the low is supposed to be around 18 tonight. Wooooooo, that is cold!
I live so far out in the boonies that I can not get a signal on my AT&T cellphone. I have to use a, gasp, landline, if I want to call someone. And because I only got the BASIC service, I also have to use a calling card to make long distance calls. As if the calls I would make would NOT be long distance. How far out is it? I have to drive 75 miles to buy groceries. If I want to go to a Wal-Mart or Borders Books, or to the chiropractor, I have to drive 125 miles. But hey, I can see a gajillion stars at night. What a deal!
Yesterday when we went to St. George, FabGrandpa bought a new super dooper laptop computer capable of playing Call Of Duty and Fear and Halo and all the other games he loves. It has DDR3, whatever in hell that means. Today, he played all day.
