Friends of Helen, Day 2
In spite of dutch ovens full of cinnamon rolls, I stuck to my planned breakfast meal with minimal mooching.
Picacho was originally a small mining town and some remains are still accessible via a short hike. It also sports solar hot water for showers in the campground for those who want to be pampered.
The park is accessed via an 18 mile gravel road which serves to limit the impact on the hot water system.
I made what I declared to be Shepard's Pie although there was some discussion regarding the liklihood of said shepards recognizing it. It was declared good and really good and I didn't get a picture of it so I'll declare it good enough. Meanwhile, there was another group making clay-baked salmon while most enjoyed turkey soup and/or chili. And you thought this was a wilderness starvation trip!

Sounds like you're eating better than you did on the cruise! Sounds like a lotta good fun and friendship too!ReplyDelete
Food on the river was wonderful but Disney wins points for presentation and table service!Delete
We'll have to work on our table service for next year ( not)ReplyDelete
Guess we'll have to trade off some veggies and firewood in exchange for matching dishes, etc. ;-)Delete
Nice trip report, John. Your last paragraph reminded me of words by the animated philosopher KTC (Krusty The Clown). "It's not just good, it's good enough."ReplyDelete
We'll have to see if KTC gets any recognition on the next river trip.Delete
