Beautiful Moon on a Nice Warm Spring Evening

After an evening out seeing the Presley's, click here for that blog post, 
and arriving back at our campsite,
I glanced up and saw the beautiful moon.

This one is one of my favorites...I love all the colors that showed up and the lower bottom left corner shows Branson down the hill.
We thought it was interesting to see how the pictures turned out with different settings. 
Now to just figure out what setting will really give us a clear shot of the moon.

First Snow of the Spring 2013

I don't know what it is about us and snow.

We raced across four states to beat a blizzard while trying to get to our son, Jamie's wedding celebration.

Upon our return to Branson on 3/20/13 we were advised of a winter storm that was due to hit on 3/21/13.  Doesn't Mother Nature realize that the first day of Spring was 3/21/13.  Guess it didn't really matter as this is what we woke up to the morning of March 22, 2013 and so I thought I would share with you our first snowfall of Spring 2013.

The view from the back of our campsite.

Icicles frozen on our screens and windows.

Ron checking out the Jeep - so thankful for the hard top!!!

3' or more on the picnic table.  Our beverage tote is definitely keeping those beverages of many flavors cold.

Ice and snow on the Jeep.

Looking from our site to Highway 265!

It looks like the road is clear but really it is a sheet of ice :)

Icy roadway.

Ron looking up the inner road - you can barely see the rigs among the trees.

Sites 6 & 7 from across the office.

Looking from the office towards our site.  You can't even see the cabin.

Thinking we will wait for the sun to come out before we take a spell of rocking on the front porch.

Yes it is pretty!! But it sure was cold!!!

Have you ever had one of those days?

I have been contemplating a couple of blog posts I wanted to do.

No problem you say.

But I have two blogs and so I wrote

this one at Alice's Restaurant earlier today.  I had a title in mind and the body in my thoughts.  
I put the title in, walked away from the computer and began thinking of my blog post for 
The Wandering Workentins
and so started writing it.

Got all done, published it and then realized I had written The Wandering Workentins post on Alice's Restaurant ~ duh, go figure.

So if you want to see what was intended for The Wandering Workentins just click on the link
(underlined up above)

and stay tuned for another blog post about life here at the campground!

WA/OR ~ Day 13 Part 2 - Onward to Branson

We didn't exactly go the direct route from Lamar, CO to Branson, MO

We went from Lamar, CO to Dodge City, KS
and then onto Branson.
