RV Overnight- Huzzah Valley Resort- Oct 24-25

We had just enough time to sneek away for a quick overnight in the RV this weekend. We had never stayed at the Huzzah River Resort. The HVR is owned by the same family as Bass Resort and Ozark Outdoors. We knew that we would have the whole place to ourselves and we did. I think there were only 3 other RV in the entire resort along the Huzzah River

 Huzzah Valley Resort - about 10 miles south of Steelville, MO. on Hwy 8
All set up with the mist rising from the river behind us

and all alone

 Huzzah River- very low on water, but even at 55 degrees outside there were some people floating the river.

 Dinner was the usual Filet and sides, but had more of the excellent Piney River Brewing Company beer. 
 Had a great fire for a few hours after dark, No stars as it was cloudy but great to sit out and just stare at the fire.

Lost Maureen O'Hara this weekend, so we payed tribute to her in one of our favorite movies
Quiet Man

Most of the colors are just beyond peak and with the rain over the last couple of days everything is muted, but this tree had all the stages at once, green on the bottom, yellow in the middle and redish brown on top.

 It was a very nice overnight get away.

Overnight RV trip Bass Resort Oct 9, 2015

We were going out for the weekend, but Vicky got Cardinal baseball tickets for Saturday night and then I got two games I needed to officiate so we decided to go camping for just one night. Vicky had never been to Bass Resort but I had, so we went down for a quiet night on what turned out to be a lovely weekend. Bass resort is only about 2 hours south of our house near Steelville, MO.

I choose site 255 or 274 because that has the best view out to the farmer field away from the campsite the Ozark Trail runs along the back fence line and up into the hills

Set up and ready to relax (above) and an empty campsite compared to the last time I was here in the summer 

Chillin' by the fire, while dinner is cooking

The required RV meal, steak and corn on the cob with some pasta salad.

 Vicky's approved, because all she has to do is sit and wait for me to cook in the RV

Found an awesome new beer from a Missouri Brewery.
both these brews are excellent

As it got dark we just burned the fire and enjoyed the campground virtually all to ourselves

 The morning dawned foggy with blue sky above the contrast made for a great scene.

We took a great walk along the Huzzah River. The water was still and swallow and just some of the Maples had started to turn colors. 

We heard many animals during the night and Vicky was surprised the cows made so much noise when they are in their natural setting.


It was fun to get away even for a night.
