Beaver Creek Recreation Area–Week 4

We’ve had rain off and on this past week. One day we had of bit of lightening and thunder, and one seemed really close. After the storm we drove around to check the campground and found a large tree in the back primitive area that had been struck by lightening; luckily no fire.

You can click on any of the pictures to enlarge them.

The fruit trees here are chokecherry, apricot and pear. The rangers said people can pick the fruit. We don’t know how to tell when the apricots are ripe; but when we’ve tasted them, they’re either hard or mushy. A gentleman came in and picked some; he makes jelly and wine with them. We’ve seen people picking chokecherries. The pears aren’t ripe yet.

The weather has been really nice. It’s been mostly in the 70’s this week and weekend, a nice change from the 90s. Very little wind, which is way different from June and July.
