Picacho Peak State Park, AZ

I10 & the Stars

Thursday, November 28, 2013, Picacho Peak State Park, AZ, - 38 miles, 4,515.6 For the Trip

Happy Thanksgiving, at least to those in the US. The Canadians had theirs last month.

A short drive today. I did take a photo of the sun setting on the mountains at Catalina last night and included it here. I was hoping Picacho Peak would be a dark campground. Parts might be, but my site is too close to the restrooms - lots of spill. In addition, I10 is a couple of miles below the campground. While you can hear the traffic (and trains) when sitting outside, they are far enough away that it isn't annoying. Once inside I can't hear them at all. I did take a photo after sunset that shows the headlights on I10 along with the stars. I'll check before I go to sleep to see if it gets any darker to try for some star photos. The rest of today's photos at LakeshoreImages.

I'm in site B1, a very level gravel site with electric only (like the entire campground).

Dinner was Chicken Parmesan with spaghetti. A frozen, pop in the toaster oven meal, the only Boston Market meal I like.
