October 2011 Camping
Our first camping weekend of October took us to Sacred Rock Reserve in San Diego county. We had a nice relaxing weekend. On Saturday night a gentlemen with a couple of telescopes came to the campground and set them up. It was great to have some of the stars pointed out to us and being able to see them through the telescope.
The next weekend we went to the Yucaipa County campgrounds and went to Oak Glen area on Saturday to see the apple orchards in the area.
We checked in on Friday about 2pm and got all set up. About 3pm we noticed the hills above us had a brush fire going. It didn't take long to pick up steam. Soon there were four water dropping choppers dumping water as fast as they could suck it up. The water source they were using was right next to the campground so we got a birds eye view of the choppers refilling with water. The fire ended up eating up about 100 areas and no structures destroyed.
The rest of the weekend was very peaceful and kick back. My kind of weekend.
Enjoy the pictures.
