Camp spot

There weren’t many camp spots along the creek. This one was a good one. We stopped to check it out and decided to come back to it if we didn’t find better on up the creek and we didn’t.campspot5


The creek at that camp spot had a lot of water flowing down it.creek6


We continued on the road and stopped at this spot for a break. It was by a nice meadow.marty8

Up this road

We’d gone as far as we wanted to up the creek road and started back to that camp spot when we saw this road so, drove on up it.road11


That road climbed the hill but eventually dead ended so we turned around and headed back.view12
