While camping I did some archeology research and exploration.

Here is a hole I found along side a small bluff.



Same general area. I had seen a groundhog peek it's head out of the hole and I kept an eye open for it to catch it on video but failed :o

I'm heading down to the same place as seen in the video to get up close to it, stick my hand in there to see if there are any snakes or treasures :lol:

I'll be going solo this time so I can get more accomplished ;) I'll be down there for a week. Will do some fishing also :D

Looks like you had good weather for camping. Did you find any artifacts on your walkabout? Was the campground busy? Did you take lots of pictures to share? Did any of your gourds mysteriously disappear while you were gone?...lol

The weather was excellent.

The gourds are much bigger after a week of growing. I should have set all of them on thier ends/bottoms to prevent one side from getting flattened. I did it yesterday....a day late :lol:

Got a few pics and videos.

I arrived at the campsite on a Monday, was the only one there till Friday evening. ^ RV's arrived. i was the only tent camper.

This time of year it gets awful lonely being the only one in such a huge park :o

Maybe some videos tomorrow.
