This weekend is a long weekend. The official start of the camping season. We decided to check out one of our favorite camping grounds along the river. As you can see by the pictures the whole place in under water. The building is the Registration office and canteen. Behind it is the river. In front of it is the parking lot. The bottom picture shows the campground. I have never seen it flooded like that before. It will be sometime before all that water is gone and the ground is dry enough to set up camp.

Perhaps there is heavy rain there lately and therefore it is a flood like that. I hope the water will be gone soon and you can have a happy camping time. Camping is a very interesting activity and I like it.

Yes we love camping. There are always other places to go but it has been just too cold and damp to camp yet.

Oh how I wish they could suck up some of that water and ship it here, we don't get very much rain.

@rebelann when you do get rain in El Paso, does it have a tendency to flood?

@Juliaacv It is suppose to be nice here now until Monday. Tomorrow and Wednesday at suppose to be the warmest reaching the mid 20s. The weekends highs are only 13-14 so not camping weather at all and then heavy rain on Monday.

The only camping people there would need to wear hip waders. It may go down quicker than you expect, though.

Oh goodness, you're going to need a pontoon boat to camp in that place! What river is overflowing and causing all the flooding?

The St. John River. It overflows every year during the spring but some years are worse then others.

Yeah, by the looks of it, you would be a little wet! Give it a few weeks. It looks chilly too, as I see you have no leaves on the trees there yet.
