Scary part is that some of them have snow on them still. The forecast for where we are going shows it will be near freezing tonight. Brrrrrrrrrrrrr.
We stopped about half way into our 250 km trip for lunch along the highway. There are not many places to pull off the highway which has no shoulder and when you do find a spot there is not much for scenery except mountains.
About 3 pm we pulled into the Sacramento Pass BLM Campground and found a nice spot to park up.
P&H pulled in right on the other side of us and we shared the same picnic shelter. We sat at their place for a while and had afternoon happy hour.
Right below us is a little pond. Apparently this BLM campground is man made and they placed a stocked trout pond in the middle.
There was one guy down there fishing. He said they are here turkey shooting and in the afternoons they fish in the pond. He said he caught enough fish for his supper.
After happy hour we went for a little walk up the hill to where there is a rocky outcropping.
Of course Charlie and I had to go up to check out a cave which went way back in the hill. We didn't stick around there too long because it looked a lot like a bear cave.
Tonight we have a beautiful view out our front window.
