"Where are you going?" I asked.
"I better turn off the pivots," he said.
It was cool enough and with the wind he was afraid they might freeze. Some folks down the valley had a pivot fall over due to ice. It costs about $10,000 to put a pivot back up, and my husband did not want to have that kind of trouble.
We hadn't separated the trailer from the vehicle, so he did that and took off. That left me thinking about what I would do if the wind blew so strongly and the trailer started rolling towards the lake. Especially because the door is really hard to open. Finally I told myself to stop worrying and go to sleep. And I did.
The reservoir looks a little puny. I'm sure some folks wish that it was warm enough to do our annual triathlon with this low water level!
The west side of the reservoir has willows and the inlet, which meant good adventures.
With the low water, it wasn't too hard to swing the kids across the creek.
From the channel, it's clear that the inlet sees some more turbulent times. It was a little muddy in areas, but fortunately we didn't sink too deep.
Desert Boy found some "dinosaur" tracks.
We also saw some tracks that looked like skunk tracks to us.
When we got back to the trailer my husband wanted to eat lunch. As it was only 10 a.m. I vetoed the idea, but conceded that we could eat early in an hour. We played cards, read books, and relaxed. It was cold enough that if we had been in a tent we probably would have just gone home, so we appreciated the trailer.
By 11 a.m. the wind was strong enough we didn't want to build a fire, so we roasted our hot dogs over the camp stove. It still gave them a good taste. Then it was time to pack up and head home.
Mission accomplished. The camp trailer is lots of fun, but still needs a lot of work!
