It is incredibly beautiful and quiet here.
We are surrounded by tall stately forests of evergreens. Patches of cloudless blue sky peek through the branches and top the clearings.
We have gardens of color splashes:
Our “patio” is an elevated terrace with a picnic table and a fire pit.
Firewood is plentiful within a few yards of our site, supplied by Mother Nature from fallen branches and limbs.
The main road circles through the 12 campsites, 7 of which are available for reserving. Three other sites house the camp host and national forest managers. The 2 remaining sites have buildings on them.
Spring Drive used to be a small mobile home “subdivision”, consisting of double-wide trailers, for national forest workers, hence the luxury of having full hookups.
Yellow jackets range a little too freely here. Butterflies share the flowers with them. Grasshoppers entertain us with their castanet-like cadence of Flamingo dancers. An occasional woodpecker visits the upper trunks of fir trees and teeny tiny chipmunks scurry across the road and through the forest.
