It’s pretty here. I’m in a quiet, shady spot and can see the marina. This is a massive lake and a prime fishing area (they even have a big pavilion for tournaments).
For $21 a night I have all the water and electric I can consume. Both appreciated as the highs reached the nasty nineties today. The A/C is going full-blast and, as soon as I recover from the sweaty ordeal of dumping, filling the water tanks, and hooking-up, I will take one very long shower. This evening, when it cools down, I’ll go see what the waterfowl are up to.I only drove 125 miles today but it took about 4 hours. State Highway 16, then 21, then 7 are roller-coaster roads. The road only differed from a roller-coaster because a) it wasn’t as wide and b) I was the only one screaming. Tight hair-pin curve after curve, no shoulders, up then down, hands at 10-and-2.

Ironically, you can’t really see much of the mountains because you are so far in them. There are no scenic pull-offs along this route which is why I can’t recommend it. I’m sure there are established scenic routes through this beautiful land.
I apologize for the lack of original photos today, but there was nowhere at all to pull over safely. Too bad, because there were some picturesque moments.Tomorrow I head for Hot Springs National Park and then it’s all about turning east, staying east, and getting home.
