I last visited this campground in 1982, during a weekend camping party that I took with my colleagues in the UC Riverside Geography Department. Yeah, it was a long time ago but I remember that weekend like it was yesterday. We all had a great time exploring the park, clambering on these boulders, and flying kites in the strong, desert winds.
I was glad to see that this campsite hadn't changed at all; even the dumpsters are in the same places! Standing here brought back a lot of great memories from the fantastic weekend and I could only wonder whatever happened to my colleagues and where they were now.
