Some of the joys of truck camping are being places where it is hard to get to. This is a map of the area where I am, right on the border of the Lizard Head Wilderness area.. Burro Bridge is on the bottom third. Three mountains of above 14,000′ are right there. A wild and wooly area of mountains and vistas and waterfalls. Great hikes, arduous hikes. Excited climbers going up. Exhausted hikers coming down to the campground. But they all have wide eyes and big smiles!
I see one of the fourteeneers, El Diente, every day. Breathtaking. How lucky to be camphosting in a truck!
Great campers arrived. They were hikers and bird watchers and friendly folk. They showed me, with a spotting scope, a warbling vireo nest … with momma or dad sitting in a large nest. I walked past the nest many times, but never saw the nest before. These great camper also helped with a new tarp set up. I couldn’t seem to wrap my head around how to cover the table … they helped design ropes and hitches. Phew.
