Wednesday, November 13, 2019 -Rio Grande Campground, Big Bend NP, TX - 146.1 Miles, 2,612.2 Miles for the Trip

A very quiet drive down US 385 to Big Bend. The clouds surrounding one of the mountains on the way into the park were interesting so I stopped for a photo.

There were 19 open sites at the Rio Grande Campground. I picked 72, an open site across from the bathroom. A dry pull through for $7.00 per night using the Senior Pass. A fairly level site that only required lowering the hitch. The only problem is the picnic table is a long way from the trailer. It is a first come site, so I won't be chased out on the 15th when reservations start. Many of the reservable sites have "Reserved" cards on them.

Interesting Clouds Site 72

After setting up I read for the afternoon. I tried setting up the NanoStation to pick up the campground store WiFi, but no luck from inside the trailer at the site. I'll try later using the outside pole. No luck outside either.  I picked up lots of personal sites here at the campground, but it looks like the campground store is too far away.

I tried reading outside, but while it was OK when the sun was shining, most of the time it was buried in the clouds, and felt cold a 61°F. I gave up and moved inside.

Dinner was a Bubba Burger, salad & applesauce.

Until Tomorrow -
