Camped for four nights this week at Cottonwood Campground west of Buena Vista. Usually not crowded but filled up by Thursday afternoon with more front rangers circling. Went up on Cottonwood Pass Saturday and had the whole place to myself to hike around. Probably cause it was 38 degrees, windy, and rain changing to snow. Got entirely too close to a couple of moose one morning. Pretty dense woods and hard to see. I'm backing up and trying to get a pic, so it ain't that great a pic. We all parted still friends. Fishing is free this weekend in Colorado. It could be free all the time at Cottonwood Lake no better than it is.

Yeah that cold weather was moving in when I went over the top about 6pm last Friday. It's nice to see that road paved after all the years of talking about it. All the dust that was kicked up on the old unpaved road got pretty bad. Maybe I'll campout up there when I do my trips to Ouray, now that they're back to mining again.
