Our job duties here are to clean the bath house (there are 5 of them but we only have 2 open because there are only 2 campers in the park right now. That takes 10 minutes at the most. We also sweep the kitchen shelter. That takes about 10 minutes. And we clean up the camp sites when people leave. So far only 1 person has left and they didn’t leave any trash. There are 28 camp sites in the park. The park manager has asked us to wait until about 10:30 or 11:00am to clean the bath houses. That really works out perfect for us because we like to get up early and go hiking or birding and are usually back at the RV by noon.
Since we had plenty of time this morning we decided to conquer the South Peak to North Peak Trail. We have been told that it is very steep and rugged. That certainly wasn’t an exaggeration! We started up the South Peak Trail. It is about 3/4 of a mile and 600 feet straight up. Most of it is on loose rock. At the ridge it’s about 1 mile to the North Peak then about 1 1/4 miles from the North Peak back down to the park. The views are fantastic!
