Fog...on Crack

I thought I'd show you some photos of our Arkansas camping trip. There were three families, all pulling RV's up the mountain to Queen Wilhelmina State Park. It's basically up a mountain on twisty turney roads. Not usually a big deal but the thing is, we were pulling a 32 foot house behind our car and we drove directly into a cloud. I have never in my life seen fog like this. It was like fog...on crack. You could not see 20 feet in front of you. That is scary when the roads have a tendency to make sharp, unexpected turns and if you were to miss the turn you'd go over the mountain and plummet to your death. And a car pulling a house can't stop on a dime.

Once we got to the camp sites we pulled in and all we could see was the camp site we were at. We couldn't see beyond them at all. The problem with this is I happened to know that we were on the top of a mountain and at some point there had to be a descent. Perhaps a sharp drop off, maybe even right across the street.

We did not let the kids explore, in fact I got nervous when the got up from the picnic table. Lucky we got there late so we didn't have much time till bedtime.

When we got up in the morning we realized that here was a huge field across from us on one side and a forest on the other. It was quite beautiful once we could see it.

So I learned something on that trip. I can never live in London.

Finally, toward the very end of the day, the sun started to peak through the clouds right before it set. It was eerie to say the least.
