Old Victoria Shelter Camp adventures

It got rather warm here on Sunday but after church, we decided to "tough it out" and camp at the old Victoria Shelter.
We'd not been there before.
We ended up doing a tad more hiking than planed.
Gee whiz it was warm!!
 Thank heavens I found a cool stream to lay in.

We found the trail well marked and in good condition.
This is an old mark that's painted in the earlier style of
marking corners.

I can watch for vermin from this porch!
This wall was all screens but it being 80 at bedtime, it was HOT. 

It was so warm we didn't sleep very well and I panted all night.

It was late and we needed start into cooking viddles right off.

Sandy cooking garden beans.

Hummmmmm steak and garden potatoes smell sooooo good.

This is plush camping!

I got kibble AND steak leftovers.

All gone!

Then on Monday morning we meet Doug W and Jim W at the Kun De Kun falls parking lot.  For the short hike to the falls, its tread was looking rough, plus sections of board walks here are in need of repairs.  They reconed and recorded all the problems they found.
Arly put up white blazes on the short hike from the parking lot.

Sandy knocked some of the new grass down.

Again it was very, very hot and work had to end early.

Here the crew (Doug took the photo) is installing a box
for trail info and a log book.

Arly made the 1st entry into the trail log.  Thanks Doug!
