We luckily found a quaint little campground nestled in the Rockies. Pleasant Valley Campground isn’t advertised much, even though it’s privately run, but it was a good find for us.
The owner/operator woman is very nice and happy to help out in any way. There are the usual few car-camping tent sites, all along a babbling stream.
There’s also a tiny little pond on the grounds. A very short 1 minute walk affords a nice view as well.
Overall, a nice experience for us both, and a convenient halfway-point to spend the night. Supper consisted of a stir-fry: Gardein, potatoes, onions, carrots, and nutritional yeast sauce; plus a French baguette.
Pretty tasty for camping in 48 degree weather.
