Sunday, February 11, 2024 -Buckskin Mountain State Park - 51.1 Miles, 3,504.4 Miles for the trip

The sun is shining & the wind is gone. Of course, I'm leaving. I ran out of propane in one tank & got it filled before I left. I headed to Buckskin around 12:30 and even though I made a stop at the Parker Safeway, and arrived before 2:00, no problem getting into my site. Site 62 is a back in double wide site level side to side and slightly high front to back - I didn't unhook. The site is full hook up on asphalt with a picnic table & grill. With tax, $41.20. A nice view of the Colorado River from the site.

Site 62

While the nearest bathroom is a short walk, the water heater is broken. The next one isn't all that far beyond the near one; less of a walk than at La Paz. The showers are the same in each building - As to the shower rating, large shower with separate drying area that is at right angles to the shower and stays mostly dry, a bench & 2 hooks, small soap dish in shower. A standard shower head, off or on handle with, at best lukewarm water. Since the building has no heat and is cold from last night, one does a quick shower & even quicker drying. Overall a C at best.

The day warmed up - my under trailer thermometer says 70°F at 4:00, and with the sun it feels like it. Still cool in the shade. I sat outside after my shower and read for a bit - current book is John Scalzi's The Consuming Fire, book 2 in the Interdependency series.

A couple of photos from the park:

Dinner was a Boston Market Sweet & Sour Chicken Bowl.
