A group of Veterans were getting together this weekend at the lake and they had a great fireworks display and the live band was pretty good too. The loud noise from the fireworks had my dog nervous, but she is used to it since the 4th of July was just a few weeks ago.
One other interesting thing from Friday night. I hardly ever have cash with me and apparently thats all they take at some of the park entrances. We were racing against the setting sun to get the tent set up and I didn't have time to go back into El Dorado for cash. The park ranger did notice that I didn't have a permit, but she was kind enough to let me get cash the next day and pay before leaving the area. In the 1% chance that she reads this blog, thank you very kindly for the leeway and yes, I did pay Saturday morning before leaving. The weather was perfect with a slight breeze and temperatures that weren't too unbearable.
