I'm getting a late start this morning, so I'm going to just show you a few photos from the park here in Kingsburg.The photo below is of the sign you see as you come to the entrance.
After driving just a short way down the paved road, you see the office ahead. To the left of the office you can see the entrance, which is through the gate I told you about.
As you drive into the park, there are sites on both sides of the road. The sites on the left are the "river front" sites and that's where I'm parked. All the sites are on the grass and most appear to be fairly level.
Below, you see me in my site, (#12), and it is quite level and long enough for both me and CLT with room left over.
This photo shows how close I am to the river. The river is kind of low right now because they've not had much rain here. There are however people using kayaks on the river, so there's evidently enough water for that.
Being that I was able to pull in, Jim and Linda have a great view of the river, and especially, Linda, really enjoys that.
It's nice and peaceful here. Many of the sites are empty at this time of the year, but those sites will probably fill up when the weather gets warmer.
Jim and Linda did go into the Kings Canyon / Sequoia N.P. yesterday, but it's getting late and I'm starting to have trouble loading photos with this slow Internet connection, so I'll save that for tomorrow's post.
I'm pretty sure we're going to stay here awhile longer, so I should have time to get you caught up.
Did you know that on this date in 1921 Iowa became the first state to impose a cigarette tax?
