It is a beautiful park and we are anxious to explore it. There are miles of hiking trails and a bike trail that has been highly touted. An old CCC Lodge has been refurbished and expanded into a conference center that looks very interesting. We plan to check out the restaurant for a non-camping anniversary dinner tomorrow night.
Old friends who live in St. Charles and recommended the park will come out for lunch today. The very unseasonable forecast predicts a high of 86 today--down from the 94 degree high when we arrived. Fortunately, the winds are also supposed to be down. After arrival yesterday we did get in a little bike ride around the campground and over to the conference center before a salmon-and-veggie foil packet supper over the fire. We also found all of the flies we thought we left behind in South Dakota plus numerous other pests so retired early to the AC and recliners.
