Trip to Aspen Grove and Upper Fish Creek

Unfortunately the Morongomobile couldn’t make it up the forest service road
due to the deep holes and very uneven, big rock strewn roadbed which hasn’t
seen a road grader in a long time. Lee ended up having to get out and guide me as I tried to turn around in the narrow dirt road to go back downhill.

So we ended up going up the other road to the Coon Creek but had to turn
around on that dirt road also, but we did discover that there are some real nice
and semi- secluded campsites along that road. Restrictions are 14 day max stay, no more than 8 people, and no more than 2 vehicles per campsite.

This is evidently bear country per the sign posted, also I didn’t see any pit toilets like at the desert spots that I have come across, so would have to figure something out- I think that soon I may go back for a couple of days and check the campsites out. Lee and I walked up to the site about 50 yards north on the road and found it was more level plus had trees in a circle where you could put a tent inside, looking out at your picnic table and fire ring! Or just set up a hammock between a couple of the trees.

Anyway, it was an unsuccessful day for photos, such as the bluebird teasing us then hiding behind the tree when we raised our cameras, etc. Here is a panorama photo with Lee sitting at the picnic table.

Above is yours truly holding my friend’s Nikon D300 digital slr with the wide-angle lens attached. Not a bad photo
considering the aesthetic limitations caused by the choice of subjects.

Okay folks. That’s all for now. I still need to process the videos from the 2nd bighorn encounter day before yesterday, so be on the lookout for that soon.

Hope to see you again out here on the backporch.
