Aspen quake quenched by snow

I am planning on departing White River Valley tomorrow. It is getting hard to find a primitive campgrounds that are open and it is beginning to snow. The temp is 33 and the forecast is warmer with showers, so there is no danger of this snow blanket lasting or increasing.

Ranger in snow.

Aspen do not quake in the stillness of a snowy morning.

Arrival at Northfork Campground, White River National Forest, CO

Where is Arrival at Northfork Campground, White River National Forest, CO?

Today’s travel: map item #40 to #41, 245 miles

Barth’s vantage point.

My breakfast view:

After wrenching myself free of the grips of Rock Springs, we had a pleasant drive to Meeker, CO and onward to the Northfork CG in White River NF. There are several CGs in the area typically 25 miles from Meeker, kinda of a long drive to get to them. I strongly recommend a stop in Meeker at the National Forest office for directions, as the signage is not good.

The drive through the valley from Meeker to the campgrounds is beautiful. I saw places I would like to live, but, yeah, I forget, I cannot afford to live where anyone else would want to live.
