Hurley was the official camp dog for the weekend

Cleaning out firepits at Sand Mountain Recreation Area   Trash left in fire pits at Sand Mountain
Spent an hour cleaning out fire pits around our camp. The magnet on-a-stick I bought from Home Depot works great for fishing out metal objects in the sand & ash. Please don't bring pallets to the dunes.

Burning Wood with nails is prohibited at Sand Mountain

Mormon Cricket   Mormon Crickets were everywhere at Sand Mountain
These "things" were everywhere. I have been told they are Mormon Crickets.

Mormon crickets will eat just about anything in their path, gobbling up sagebrush, gardens, lawns and crops. They’ve also been observed munching horse dung and won’t hesitate to eat each other.
