The weather changed in the late afternoon as I approached the Canyon Campground plus the altitude here is over 7900 feet

Ramona all settled in there is still snow behind her..I am booked here for 2 nights this is a huge campground there are showers, laundry and a dump and water station, also rest rooms….. cost 21 dollars per night.

So it was just a wonderful day I think the plan and route that I took was a good one and I hope tomorrow that I can do two serious hikes.

The usual tonight, shower, dinner movie and tea…life is not all that bad!!
