Fort Stevenson State Park–last week

The 4th of July holiday was busy and there was a lot of turnover. It wasn’t windy and we aren’t in a burn ban yet and fire pits were being used, so cleaning was pretty constant.  Other than that, we did the usual cleaning, selling ice and firewood, empty the mosquito trap, spraying weeds, answering questions, picking up litter, etc.  Our temperatures have been in the upper 80s to upper 90s with one day of 100.

Friday night the interpreter made fluffy slime with the kids. We didn’t realize the program was moved up an hour to 7:30, so we missed this one.  There was no program Saturday morning. Saturday evening was a game of FORTS with one of the rangers leading it. They were giving away Fort Stevenson State Park tee shirts as prizes and popsicles.

We’ve noticed a lot of dragonflies lately, which is good as they eat mosquitoes. It’s hard to get pictures of them though; they move so fast.

We will be leaving here this week and going to Beaver Creek Recreation Area, a Corp of Engineers park, for another volunteer camp hosting job. We haven’t worked for the Corp before, so it will be interesting to see what differences there are. I’m not sure if I’ll be able to do blog posts from there, as the Verizon signal is supposedly spotty, but we’ll see. 

For more pictures, please click here, there’s only a few this time.

Happy 7th birthday to our granddaughter, Alaina!
