On rainy days here in Oregon I find myself dreaming of Arizona, practically Buckskin Mountain State Park. The park is shown here in this photo I took while staying there in November of 2005 on a trip across the southern states. The park is an attractive green oasis located on the banks of the Colorado River on the western boarder of Arizona. This park is where we will be spending our winter this year as volunteers. I will be doing volunteer trail maintenance and leading nature hikes. Jeanette will be volunteering in the registration office and gift shop.
