A great 2 weeks!

Needed to get out of the heat! Camping at nearly 9,500 feet solved that problem. Quads and cycles around, but the sound of the river was generally all I heard.

Out here working from the best office ever! Starlink worked well.

Beautiful river, beautiful mountains

Great spot for fishing, waking up to river sounds, and sage brush Mountain Views. Lots of four wheelers/RVs so if you’re looking for something more remote and tent only this is not the place! We used it as an overnight spot for tent camping between Leadville and crested butte and that worked perfectly.
