San Luis Reservoir

4/14/2012

We finally had a chance to go in search of new adventures and images to share.  We spent the first night out at San Luis Reservoir.  The Basalt campground is in a lovely, tree shaded valley protected from the wind by  rolling hills just beginning to turn green. 
The sky had the dramatic but nonthreatening clouds common at the end of a stormy period.  A good omen for camping trip.

Find more skies at SkyWatch, Friday, hosted for us each week by Sandy and Sylvia.
