    Took a walk to the lake, the lake was very nice, and the park is nice as well. Holly met another boy, so we did not see much of her the rest of the day. I guess she has hit the age where boys no longer have cooties. I hoped to never see this day, but growing up is something we can’t prevent. After going to the lake, we cleaned cabinets out, then went to Starbucks in Randal to finish booking parks, and do some shopping.

On getting back to the park, we hiked a quarter mile back into Randal falls, it had 3 water falls in parallel to each other with a good head of water. There were caves that we walked in and thought were cool due to the temperature and the stalactites.  Everyone had a good time until Holly forgot to duck while coming out of the cave entrance. (That really hurt. According to her anyway.) We then packed up and went to bed dead tired again.

Tomorrow we make another road trip to Golden Colorado.

Now that is a turn. Around here I am surprised it’s not 50MPH

A view of the state park. I found out I can’t was the RV here, they are low on water.
