It was a beautiful weather day. The very minor blip of Ida felt in this area was over. The high temperature was around ninety with a favorable lower humidity level. It was a very comfortable day.
Today’s exercise was a hike in the Two Rivers park about 3 miles east of my campsite. The Pulaski County park has walking, biking and horseback trails in an area between the Arkansas River and the Little Maumelle River. It also hosts the county garden center with vegetable gardens hosting produce grown by area residents.
My walk was along one of the walking and horseback trails. It meanders along the side of an open field and through tree lined areas around a pond. I came upon two young deer. They still had their spots. I’m not sure if their mother was around or not, but I was careful to let them move away as they wanted while I took their pictures.
Strangely, for a midweek night, the campground has a lot of new arrivals. Most nights I haven’t had any neighbors. Tonight I have one on each side. They are very different. On one side I have a guy in a tiny blue tent. The other side is a rig at the opposite end of the spectrum. It is a big diesel pusher motorhome complete with a tag axle. Watching the motorhome back in was a little nerve racking. We share part of a common driveway.
