Sky Watch Friday/Parking not always the best


Leaving the Salt Flats. The sky was very clear, it was starting to get late so we decided that we better start looking for a place to camp for the night..We thought we saw a sign for RV parking. Well if you have ever been in a rv and towing a car you know that you can't back up if you screw up, well we found ourselves in that predicament, so this is the church that we tried to turn around in but didn't have enough room, so you have to unhook the car, Of course you all have to know i told hubby not to pull in there, and even when he did i told him he can drive around in the back of the church, but oh no he wouldn't listen, well you know these men they always know more than we do......


So by the time we got unhitched and hooked back up again we left there in hopes of finding a out of the way parking area, but that was too be another hour or so away, and when we did find it we thought it was a great spot, not too far off the road which was nice as it was a two lane road, figuring not too much traffic at night,but about an hour after we got all settled in, the train comes by, and every hour or so after that all night long we would wake back up to the sounds of the train and the whistle. So much for a good nights sleep and cheap parking.....But then i have to say we have also paid for RV Parks and the darn train is right there as well. Over the yrs we always try to avoid those places, but sometimes its hard to do
So here is a close up of the graffiti that was on the tall grain stack.....
Leaving there i took many photos of the country side but this one i wanted to share, look at those fences that are up there, now tell me who in the world wants to spend that kind of money to put a fence up... Do you also see those huge rocks sort of scattered around? makes me wonder were they came from since the rock hill looks pretty smooth.

Great shots!
That is a little odd with the fence and I'm wondering how hard it was to put one up in solid rock.
I think I forgot on an earlier visit to say that I like the new header.

I understand the problem of tight spaces. That's one of the reasons we got our little class B. It wouldn't suit everyone but I rather the inconveniece of the cramped spaces inside to dealing with cramped spaces out side.

Maybe the fence is for goats or longhorn sheep that live up there.

At first I was thinking it might be for sliding rocks or something to do with th weather.

Men what do you do with them. They never listen.
Good question about the rocks.

Janie said...

The fence and the rocks are quite a curiosity!
Too bad about the noisy trains.

Sorry, I had to laugh at husband dearest and the Church parking lot deal. Also even with the train three miles away when the wind is right we can hear those two longs and one short as they go across the crossings. Now that sure is a silly place to put a fence. Peace

That is a cool hill, and I'm thinking aliens or something left the rocks.

That is a funny story! I know I wouldn't be a good RV driver. Regarding your overnight stop, just chalk it up as a learning experience. I always wondered if one can really park almost anywhere for an overnight stay?
