This morning I played campground host. The only park employee I've seen so far has been the grounds keeper, and it must have been her day off - no one raised the flags, and I never saw the truck. Because I'm in the host position, everyone assumes that's what I am!

A little before lunch I decided to wash the trailer. I scrubbed about 8 months worth of bugs off the front, and lots or road dust off the rest of it. I also put a quick coat of wax on the front; keeping it waxed makes it easier to scrub off the bugs. I thought about washing the RAV4, but decided that I'd wait until I'm unhooked somewhere & head for a car wash.

I took a photo of the park sign and a couple of other non waterfall photos with the Nikon D200. The bird on the wire reminded me of the ad for public TV that had a composer using the birds on the wires outside his window to write a melody. Only one bird, so only one note, but I liked the effect. The railroad track is in a gully that is deep enough that even though it is just 50' from the campsite, you barely hear the trains.

The clouds managed to stay around this evening and after dinner (which was a chicken breast fillet, rice & snap peas) I headed back to the falls. Unfortunately, while there was some color on the horizon, it was behind us, not over the falls. And I do mean us. The last two nights there were only one or two photographers; tonight there were at least 10. It looked pretty funny with the row of us lined up along the edge of the overlook.
