Beautiful Camp Sites for a Truck
I camped here for 5 days. Many friends stopped by (Susan, Davidson, Mike, Burt, Amber and Bryce.) That was the gold. There was no gold found in this part of the West Dolores. Had a Steller’s Jay visit every morning and evening. A chipmunk, also, every morning and every evening around dusk. And there was something very big when I went outside to pee in the middle of the night. The next morning it was 29 degrees and there was no gold, so it was time to follow the river downhill.
From 9,200′ to 7,800′ warmed up the mornings to the 40’s. Stayed here for 5 days. Then came a weather report of high Thunderstorms. So I started looking around to see what needed to be put away. Then I looked up, away from the river.
Three big dead trees over Lilith. I was out of that spot in 15 minutes. How did I not notice them for 5 days?
Truck Camper Hint: Look around AND UP before choosing your intended site.
So, I moved down the river a bit. Saw these folks on my evening walk. How Colorado.
