Leasburg dam state park

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.
