Back Country camp in the Gates of the Mountains Wilderness Area

In the past this campsite that was clearing constructed in the past would have received 5 stars, but in the last two years the site has changed a little.  Two flat areas have been constructed at this site, a cooking area with a rock fire ring and another for a tent pad.  But since my last visit a very large tree has fallen and landed right next to the cooking area with several of its large limbs stretching in to the spot.  The spot has also become a little overgrown, don't know it that is its usual look in the fall as I have always visited in the spring.  The site is between two small creeks.  Due to the very dry summer only the smaller stream was still flowing, water could be collected at its crossing of the trail above the camp site, this was at a slow trickle.  The site is still decent but I would not make a fire here due to the high grass around the camp.  The site is about 3.5 miles from the trail head and located in the Gates of the Mountains Wilderness Area.
