It’s Easter weekend and the campground is beginning to fill up with Weekenders and Day-users. Yesterday it reached 100 degrees (yes!) and I imagine the lure of the river and water activities will keep everyone cool this weekend – provided Mother Nature complies – they have anticipated some storms for Easter Sunday.

Male CardinalOne thing that always bothers me about weekend tenters is the neglect of nature during their camping trip. Many folks don’t hesitate to put their tents over a patch of wildflowers or crank up the radio so you can’t hear the birds and other sounds of nature. They leave behind litter and hazards to wildlife.

So before the lovely Spring blooms disappear and the birds went into hiding for the weekend, I snapped some photos. Enjoy!

Heron After Easter Update: Yes, most of the lovely flowers are gone. Unfortunately one patch was even used as a dumping ground for ash/charcoal remains. Although Mother Nature must have a plan – they anticipate several days of rain which will bring out more flowers. The birds can be seen and heard now. Ah, nature has returned to the campground once again! 😉
