We made our way to Sunset Campground at Furnace Creek and set up. Our rigs (L-R), John/Geri, Andy/me; Bruce/Sue, Ron/Pat:
Our next stop was the Furnace Creek Visitor Center to check out the upcoming activities, museum, and book store. At 4 PM, we all met for Happy Hour including Ron and Pat (also Escapees). Happy Hour lasted until the sun set and the sky lit up with stars, oh my! What a beautiful sight to see!
We will be here for around 10-11 days so stay tuned and enjoy today.
