The title here is a bit misleading. We are camping alone, now, but we are not way out in the boondocks alone…..but by ourselves in a forest campground, East Fork.
Since arriving almost three weeks ago we have been with friends and new friends. First week we were at a fiberglass rally, then shared a campsite with a new friend from the rally. Then we relocated to property close to Pagosa Springs where an impromptu Kansas rally was happening.
We found a lovely, heavily shaded campground east of Pagosa Springs six days ago and have not been motivated to leave. We have been sight-seeing, relaxing and doing chores……there are pit toilets and one well with a huge handle on the pump. A real workout to get a few gallons of water!
Not much to say but the Nikon is being used and I’m finally getting away from the S5 phone photos.
Our first site…had to move after three days due to reservations….is on a bluff overlooking the East Fork of the San Juan River…(first photo above.)
There’s a water falls, Silver Falls, way up the gravel road that runs by the campground. The above photos were taken of the East Fork while searching for the falls……turned around after about 5 miles…got tired of the bumpy road!
Treasure Falls is on the main road of 160. We manage to climb up for a proper view.
Wolf Creek Pass is a granddaddy of mountain passes…..at least someone told me that. No history of driving in big mountains. We drove up in the Tundra to check it out.
Our only other big mountain pass was on our way to Alaska. I need to pull the Escape up and over to get over my nervousness. (This has not happened yet!)
Views from the overlook returning back to camp.
Another day we drove back up and over the mountain to have lunch with friends who are camping in South Fork. We stopped at Big Meadow campground to check it out.
If we get motivated to leave East Fork, Big Meadow may get a visit and the Escape will get to cross over the Continental Divide. Oh, joy!
Overall, life is good!
