Waiting for the coffee to perk - haven't had to do that for awhile. We're beyond the electric lines - any electricity in the area is from generators - that goes for towns or individuals. The main generator at this CG broke down, and the smaller one doesn't have enough power for the RV sites - just the store and gas pumps. However, the waterfront sites we have more than make up for the dry camping. Just beautiful! Getting to our sites was no small feat - a very steep grade down to the edge of the lake, and then tight turns so we could all line up facing the lake. Nizhoni loved the lake - biting at the waves and splashing around in the very cold water. We took a narrated boat tour of the lake in the evening, after a cook-out, which was fun. The second day we went to the Lliard Hot Springs for a great soak in some very hot water. Richard and I stayed in quite awhile - boy did that help any aches or pains we had. Had lunch at a little place across the road - I had a buffalo cheeseburger - quite good!
