We had a primitive camp site that had a rock fire ring. The best part of this camp site was that it was FREE. The elevation of our camp site was a little over 11,000 feet.
There was a really decent outdoor toilet across from our camp site that is maintained by the National Forest Service.
I hiked up about 1/2 mile so that I could see Uncompahgre Peak. I stayed behind with the girls during Jay and Garrett's hike and packed up our camping gear.
The view east toward Lake City from the lower part of the trail.
This is one of two major water crossings as you drive the Nellie Creek trail. I took this as we were leaving.
Aspens lined much of the road. I would love to see this in about a month with fall colors.
