Snow in winter months...

From our prospective it seems foggy most
of the time, but that is because we camped
here mostly in the winter months. The weather
conditions are better here than surrounding areas.
(It does snow in winter and you need to be prepared)

Burnt Out RV...
Arson is a good guess, but for what reason
we don't know, maybe vandalism or just getting
rid of the garbage.
