Meteor Shower - Wanapum SP

Nov 17,  2012
Highlights:
So the purpose of this trip was to watch the Leonids Meteor Shower in Nov 2012 at Wanapum State Park, WA (So of Vantage)..... but in the rain?? and in Washington?? heheh.. Not...
But also to test out the computer's WiFi connections for future trips to update from the campsite.

Details:
It was a little weird coming into the park which is usually full or semi-full for this time of year.  The Camp Host and Park Rangers are usually all around.
But not this time.  WTF, I said to my self. This place is completely empty and the leaves undisturbed by tires.
Did I miss something???
Was there a sign saying "The upstream Dam release will flood this area at 3 am.." (since all thing that are a PITA happen at 3am in the morning.  Was there a Cougar loose? the Wild Man from Borneo?? or "The Wild Amazonian Women from the Planet Sleaze" are running loose, enh? maybe not so bad after all??

Place was completely empty, no park host, no rangers and certainly no campers...
So set up camp, light rain/drizzle an then some "Tired Rain", few heavy drops here an there, then stops, then starts..

Set up the computer, Lap Top, plugged in the dongle to the Router and after all that?  had the wrong password.

Sent, more like pestered my friends with the JitterBug phone photos and uploaded to Face book.  Geesh, at least some thing worked.

Late at night a single Subaru pulled in at the far end and set up tents.

Had my 3 beers and went to bed..
Photo Gallery of the "Empty" park.. nothing else to take pics of.

WTF is Wanapum St Pk, WA???
