The two RV Gypsies at Quarry Park
in Winston-Salem, NC
May 21, 2022 & May 10, 2023

In May 2022 and again in May 2023, the two RV Gypsies went to Quarry Park, which is just a 5-minute drive from downtown.

history book When mining operations on the site stopped in the late 1970s, the quarry filled with water and eventually became a 200-foot deep, 12 acre-lake. Vulcan Materials Company donated the land to the city, and in 2017, the property reopened as a public park. While there are overlooks, the highlight is a pedestrian pier that jets out 100 feet over the blue lake (shown below), offering magnificent views of the surrounding cliffs and the city's panoramic skyline. Paved parking, hiking and walking paths are on the 200-acre property.

Sometime between the two RV Gypsies visits in 2022 and 2023, a playground was added.

Below: Once up on the raised platform, the two RV Gypsies saw that the fence was covered with locks. Karen Duquette could only photograph a small portion of the locks, because there were other people walking around, blocking the view of the other locks. Below: - 2022 and 2023 photos.
