Hot, dry, sandy, no shade, decent facilities, historical setting

  • I followed this pickup, but after stopping and getting out to assess the options, I chose to go to the left. There was less water showing, but what I couldn't see is that the mud was deeper on the left. It took me 17 minutes to get out.
