Another slow day, but it was a beautiful one. Lost an hour last night, so we started out a little later this morning. In the afternoon, I decided to go for a bike ride down to the lake. I was surprised to find that the primitive camping area was down next to the lake.
Took the bike down the gravel road and there was no one in the primitive area. It had a number of sites very near the water. Unfortunately, they charge $10 for no facilities at all, and for $4 more you get water and electric, so we chose the latter. The grassland around the lake is beautiful and serene. Bet there are lots of jack rabbits in there munching away. The lakeshore is not hospitable. No walking along the shore at this lake.
After getting back from my bike ride, I took the jeep down to the dam to take a look around. Climbed to the top and looked back at our campground.Looking south along the lake berm holding the water from the desert floor below.My jeep waits for me to climb back down.
In the trees in the background, is the Pecos River after leaving this dam. I am now heading down to the Pecos River to get a few last photos before we leave the area tomorrow.
See you later.
