Alder Lake State Park, Washington




Alder Lake State Park, Washington, was a gorgeous state park, low on water. No fires allowed, we have found that camping out is tough when you can not have a campfire. How do you eat folks? We are looking into propane campfires. A persons gotta eat. We don't always want to eat out at restaurants, that gets to darn pricey.

That's a fire behind the campground, across the water. They campground folks didn't think it would burn across the water, but for folks who don't love fire like us, we could not believe they were more nervous about the winds? We would see fire trucks running every where, they would have camps set up for the fire folks to stay in. Those fire fighter folks really do amazing work. We heard tons of tales. It sounds like a lot of this work is done by just the common folks, not all of them real fire fighters. some farmers get to fight their own battles, no help from any one. that's scary to me. where is their state of emergency? WHAT??!! where is their help???! their assistance?! Beth ( ;

Hello Beth, the lake and mountain scenery is gorgeous. The wildfires are scary, I thank god for all the firefighters. They put their lives on the line. When hubby and I used to camp many years ago we had a little propane stove for cooking. Happy Monday, enjoy your new week!

Forest fire fighters do a hell of a job year in and year out. Beautiful shots, Beth!

People don't use their heads when they are inexperienced campers. Love your pictures. Have a special week.

These are some beautiful and peaceful scenes,but the threat of forest fires is not that relaxing.

Little Pee Dee State Park, South Carolina

Happy Labor Day!! I always wonder about this thing called Labor Day, who decided to call it that? Was everyone in labor or what? Here's what google thinks: "A public holiday or day of festivities held in honor of working people, in the US & Canada on the 1st Monday in Sept. in many other countries on May 1st".

"Little Pee Dee State Park", Dillon, South Carolina. I think this was one of the most friendliest state parks, meaning the camp hosts actually stopped by, asked us where we were from, how long we were staying & just really went out of their way to make use feel welcome and thanked us for stopping by.
I don't ever recall visiting a state park that has ever had dirt roads & I do wonder what they would be like on a rainy day? I bet they would a muddy mess. My Dad had to tell me that my 3 great aunts used to visit this state park when he was younger Mat, Meta & Min were there names. I only knew Meta, who made it till her 99 bday... sadly s…

Before we get into the good amazing pics I am going to share today ... let me talk a bit of every day life ... what has been happening with me. The hubby and I went on a trip over 2 wks ago ...to enjoy a Casita rally in Arkansas, was hoping for cooler temps. It was a real ball. Met lots of new friends and got to see some super awesome buddies. I had gone all summer not seeing in copperheads and was super happy about that ... was hoping my go for copper was going well ... well during that rally i got to see one and then came home to start my yearly fall chore of raking leaves and there was one to greet me. LUCKY ME. not!!! All good ... life goes on ... but Let me tell ya it was not fun.
