Hi Steve
Glad to hear you are enjoying yet another great county park in Iowa. My Dad was raised near Guernsey Iowa also in Poweshiek County. I usually stop at mile marker 201 truck stop.where highway 21 goes south down to Deep River and What Cheer when I hunt deer at Barnes City. We live about 60 miles NE of your location. The bright object just east of the moon tonight is Saturn. If you've got a telescope or good binoculars you should be able to see the rings. Good luck on your trip East, glad you've discovered another diamond in the Corn Belt.
All the best
Iowa Dave

Forgot to mention, there is an abundance of Osage Orange trees in that area. The large green fruit is falling now. They are collected and used to keep spiders out of closets and houses in general in the fall. Might work to keep clowns away too if you put them around your camper especially if they step on one, fall and crack their head. Maclura pomifera for the botanists.

Dave, Thank-You so much! We have been watching that large bright object in the sky, but didn't know what it was. Saturn! I'll be darned. Beautiful here, have the park virtually to ourselves. I gotta say, The Canada Geese are active tonight. We watched hundreds land and collect on the lake. They have been active and noisy, but couldn't be a more pleasant sound to sip a nightcap.
Thanks for the tip on the oranges Dave. We'll keep our eyes peeled tomorrow. Got to keep the goblins away!

Cheers

Assateague State Park

We were visited this morning by a small band of horses.The male couldn't take his eyes off Mis-Adventue. He knows a quality trailer when he sees one.

I follow Technomadia on Instagram and that is their bus in the background of your picture. They posted the same scene this morning on their Instagram page. Too funny!

And another

The horses have been hanging around Mis-Adventure and the neighbors tents for the last two hours. And one walked right by our door for a closer look. Skye Deva dog sat up to get a better and then layed right back down not impressed with them being so close.image.jpg
