I got my campsite at Chatfield state Park just about lunchtime, found my site, hooked up, and settled in for the night.
I dumped my tanks, which is the reason I came here, soon as I got to my site figuring the tanks would be well shaken during my drive over here and got that least favorite of my chores out of the way right off the bat.
It looks a little more like Fall over here than it does at my daughter's house. I see more yellow leaves and more dead brown grass like you would expect to see in the Fall which so far is barely happening at the lovingly watered and manicured lawns in the neighborhood.
When I plugged into the shore power post here at the Park it I was the first time the Arctic Fox has been plugged into AC since I got to Denver. When I think about the Arctic Fox being able to keep me comfortable with all the electricity I require, other than air conditioning which I seldom miss at this altitude, it's really amazing. And it does it with 840 watts of solar power and 400 amps of lithium iron batteries. I know that probably sounds like a lot to some, and not enough to others, but for me it works out just right.
A quiet day fishing on the reservoir. The trees in the background are starting to show their Fall colors.
Sailing on the reservoir.
The sailboat gives you some idea of the size of the dam that holds back this reservoir, and this is only about 1/3 of it. It was designed to hold back huge runoffs during the Spring after very snowy winters.
