On Thursday I decided to take a short walk around the park. Ever since I arrived it has been extremely windy with gusts up to 40mph. However I was getting cabin fever and needed to get out and see what the park had to offer.
Next to the visitor’s center was a cactus patch garden with signage for many of the plants. It was very nice.
Across from the visitor’s center there is a huge playground for the kids and further down the path I found this beehive oven used for cooking.
They also had a small amphitheater where the rangers would present talks on various subjects pertaining to the local area.
These next two pics show the magnificent views I had from my rig.
I was even able to find a few flowers still in bloom.
This is a view of the sunset taken out of my camp site.
I am hoping the wind will die down so that I can get out and enjoy my surroundings. The wind has been blowing at 22 mph ever since I got here with gusts of 40-50 mph. It blows sand everywhere and does not make for good hiking. I will see tomorrow.
