A Wonderful Isolated Camping Treat

We are in Council Grove, Kansas. A town with a rich history of being the last place to stock up on supplies before heading 100's of miles further west in the early 1800's at the start of the settlement of our US West. The town has charm and style. It is hot and humid. The first of this type of weather since we started our journey. We have been so cool and dry for so much of our mountain summer. Yellowstone, Wyoming, Colorado. Local Topeka AM TV news said the low last night was the same as the average daytime high for this time of year. Muggy and with multitudes of insects including clever little flies that are small enough to get in through our screens. But it is OK. We are in a Corp of Army Engineers campground at a site on the reservoir they made here in the early 60's. We arrived Labor Day and the next morning, we were totally alone. Another first in our travels. It has been delightful.
Here are the trees by campsite there that prevent the glare from the early morning sun's stare into our lair.
And here is our setup.
Here is the completely empty campground. So pleasant to enjoy.
