rick in the rockies

Rick the Rig got to roam the James Peak Wilderness this past weekend and he loves to stretch his 4x4 wheels. The campsite was recommended in 5280 magazine describing it as
a short half-mile trek from your car (you'll need 4wd) leaves you on the wildflower-swathed banks of a shallow, fish filled lake. Secluded spots abound around the main lake, as well as around the other nearby waterholes. Beautiful, bubbling waterfalls connect the lakes and make for easy water access.

They forgot the wonderful nighttime view of the stars away from the city light pollution. The site was situated perfectly next to a babbling brook and under the canopy of the trees. Warning: off-road 4x4 passed the site every hour or two heading down a trail. Other than the annoying engine sounds, this was a wonderful campsite to relax, hike, fish, and mtn bike.
