The night had been a cold one, I think the coldest so far, but with my newest friend, the space heater, the trailer remained warm and cozy thru the night.
Even though the day was cool (low 50s), the sun had returned and it just gave you a whole new get up and get out feeling. I decided to get off my behind and take a walk down a short trail that originally had been created by the CCC.
For those scratching your head going what? CCC? The Civilian Conservation Corps was created by the government during the great depression of the 1930s. Its purpose was to create jobs while helping to build and refurbish our federal parks and other federal lands.
About all that’s left of this encampment is some cement foundations that of course, I didn’t take any photos of.Kind of spectacular when you think about it, considering that civilization is just a hop, skip and jump away. It puts you in a gulf shores state of mind.
Coming back after dark I saw a opossum (I’ll call him Jim Bob). An ugly little critter, but one that eats a lot of stuff that we want to stay away from us (like bugs and such). I don’t get to see many opossum’s so I thought it was neat.
