Winter in the Desert

I visited Fisher Towers in early January of 2017. A just over 2 mile drive up the snowy, gravel road brought us to an empty campground. It was clear from tire tracks that folks had been there during the day to take the hikes in the area, but the campground itself had seen no traffic. There were several sites, improved with large fire rings, heavy duty picnic tables and a nice pit toilet. Behind the campground is a tall bluff and a great silhouette of the Fisher Towers, redstone spires that stand against the sky. This site is very open, with small trees, and an expansive view that stretches miles down to the Colorado River.
