Unexpected snow!

This campground was nice, lots of large trees and big sites. We had several neighbors,but it was not hard at all to find a place to ourselves.

Unfortunately, while we were here, we had a twist of unexpected weather. We got hit with a TON of crazy wind which made our tent bend all the way to the ground. We ended up seeking shelter in our car.

We woke up to a bunch of snow and decided to drive out… which was a bad idea. The roads were too slick with water and we ended up driving off the road! (See video) Thankfully the locals were nice and pulled us out!

DO NOT ATTEMPT TO DRIVE HERE IN WET CONDITIONS!
