Storm clouds passing over 11 mile reservoir state Park. If you look way in the back you can just see the snowcapped peaks of the real mountains.
Another rainy day at 11 mile reservoir state Park. Normally it just clouds up and rains in the afternoon, but today it's been rainy all day. I checked the weather forecast and now it looks like it's going to be rainy and cloudy the next five or six days. I'm sure glad I'm not on vacation because that would be a real bummer.
I have to leave the park tomorrow and I was planning on going out to my property for a week but that weather forecast has me kind of worried about the dirt road [ jeep trail ] that I use to get to Poverty Gulch. There's a couple of places that have washed out in the past after heavy rains. And even though there's a second longer way of going to and from the property that way is pretty shaky to if the weathers bad. Neither one of these roads is a problem for a four-wheel-drive vehicle so I know my truck can come and go, it's the Arctic Fox I'm worried about.
There's some national forest boondocking areas 2 or 3 miles from here that I stayed at last year, and I'm considering staying there again instead of risking the trip out to Poverty Gulch. I'm hoping the weather report will look better tomorrow morning when I have to leave here, if not I'll probably head into the national forest where there are several sites available that are only a hundred yards or so from a paved road, and no creek to cross like my road has.
