We are still on shake down and getting everything to work on a new to us 2007 FWC Hawk. With summer here and the odd heavy rains abating for a weekend it was time for an extended 3 day weekend a little farther from home than our fist Memorial day shakedown close to home. Still working on the water pump to get it functioning, and the 3 way fridge is not fully cooperating - wife thinks everything spoiled, but that will be a different thread on to the trip
Route was something like this
Our first stop was at Mushroom Rock State Park, the rains just opened up as shortly before we truned down the dirt road to the park. We came in from the west and the turn to the right was slick as we slid around the corner, soon after getting there the rain let up enough for a hike through the little park, The kids had fun using the Mushroom Rocks as an umbrella.
The park is small but interesting rock formation.
Then it was on to Lake Kanoplolis, where we found an unimproved, (tent site, -lowest cost) overlooking the lake from the rock bluffs.
A hike down Horsethief Canyon lead to one of the small caves in the area.
As night rolled in a storm was rolling in again from the south. I tried to take some picts of the lightning but mosquitoes got the best of me before the storm got close. We all stayed dry in our Pop-up.
Dropped my daughter off at camp the next day then started out to Castle Rocks.
Stopped for some gas at Victoria and went into town to check out the Catherdal on the Plains
Quite impressive when you think about the limited population in this area that build this massive church.
