In the desert spring sprang a couple months ago and now it’s summer. The cheat grass has gone dormant and the temps are flirting with 90*back in Fruita.
At the Blacktail Creek Campground spring is just now springing. The camp is at 9100 feet in a mix of aspen and pine trees. The Aspens are bright green, and the mountain flowers are in bloom. The camp is between Toponas and Kremling on CO 131. Dirt road, pit toilet, and a dumpster round out the accommodations.
I’m on my way to MeadowFest to join my chosen family for a long weekend of singing songs around a campfire
