I get to the east entrance self-pay station for the Valley of Fire State Park. After seeing I can pay at the campground I get back onto the bike to hurry over to find a campsite.
I hoped to get out onto the scenic drive for sunset photos. I had about 1 hour of daylight left. Unfortunately Mr Yuasa didn't want to cooperate.

Well this sux. There were some other tourists in the area, so I got an opportunity to meet new people as I begged for a jump start.
I met a cool motorcyclist, also from Phoenix, who was there in a sedan and in no time we had the bike running.
With new priorities, I grabbed a nice campsite and hoped I could get the bike into town tomorrow. I settled for photography from the campground.
It was a nice clear evening with a bright moon. I met a nice young couple camping nearby. Scott and Chasey(sp?) were there with Alaskan plates. I wished I had traveled more when I was their age.
