A rough ride with a nice camp at the end

Upon leaving Meeker, a pleasant little town, a dispersed camping area of the White River National Forest, identified by the local NFS office, was visited for three nights.  Access to the location, with an altitude of about 9000 feet, is from the Yellowjacket Pass on CO-13 on #48, identified as the Wilson Park area. The last 2 miles of the generally good earth road is teeth shattering, rock strewn road. It is difficult to recommend this area for a large motorhome, though trailers up to medium size fifth wheel, should fare better.

Warning! When you listen to a local NSF or BLM officer, the visions of sugarplums dancing in your head may not match reality. Proceed with caution. They mean well, but sometimes cannot be objective of a road they drive daily or weekly on business in someone else’s 4WD pickup truck!

Sorry, pics were forgotten. But all you would have seen is trees, near and far!
