After arriving and getting set up, I decided to check out the many hiking trails in the park. This area had some heavy rain over the past few days.
|There were water puddles all over the campground, but the roads were paved and fine.|
|Nice Trail and nice scenery|
|They call Louisiana the "Sportsman Paradise". These guys are taking advantage of that.|
On the 27th, I decided to go for a longer walk. I chose the longest walk in the park. There were wooden bridges and walkways constructed along the trail to keep you out of the wetlands.
|The blue blaze on this tree was the primary trail markings.|
I ended up walking over 5 miles. I really enjoyed the walk and felt good about the accomplishment.
While I was was out walking, we got an RVillage message from our neighbor in the campground. Mike and Jodie are full timers and were parked right next to us. They were going to have a campfire in the evening and invited us to join them. Kim forgot and took a shower and did not want to get smokey, so I went over and was social for the evening. I really enjoyed our time talking about life on the road and sharing experiences. It was a very pleasant evening. Kim did meet Mike and Jodie the next day before we left. They have only been on the road for about 4 months, so it is all new to them. We are beginning to feel like the old pro's. It is great to talk to people that understand our lifestyle. It really reminds us of what we love about the way we live.
I had to grab this shot as I went out to enjoy the campfire.
From there it was on to the New Orleans area. Come back to see if we were able to stay out of jail.
