This morning was overcast but we did have wildlife to watch. Four deer walked down into the RV sites headed for the lake. They almost made it but someone was walking their dog and back up the hill they ran.
The park is surrounded by cattle ranches and the drive out took us over several cattle guards. Along our way, we were slowed several times and stopped by moms with their calves. The calves were very curious and seemed a bit confused about the truck that was NOT delivering feed.
We arrived at John Martin reservoir to our boondocking site. The site we picked is a large grass field on a peninsula on the lake. Quiet with no one for about a mile any direction. The plan is to stay two nights.
In the evening, we watched a spectacular lightning show far to the west of the park.
We are a couple who have started on a new adventure...
