Boondocking in the Pike NF, Days 2 & 3

 Tuesday, August 9

Slow day today, didn't do much of anything really, just enjoying the solitude and recharging my batteries.

I did find a really nice group campsite off of FR32y that might be the next spot I move to after the revival.

Here's the sunset from that new spot:

You get a nice view of Pikes Peak from the new spot:

Here's the same possible future campsite, in the morning's light.

Did some light exploration riding with Yagi, my TW200, but nothing scenic to report.

Shortly after 1PM, Rich K. arrived from Hotchkiss, CO.  He brought along his motorcycle and set up camp at the actual Revival Campsite, 1 mile from my own campsite.

After he got setup, we went up to the top of the mound of rocks that is next to the Revival campsites.  I will be up there again to get better pics, but here's some for now.

A view of nearby Devil's Head....

Here's an almost 360 degree pano from the top of the boulders.  I'll see if I can do better but you get the idea, great views.

Some more Revival participants should show up by tomorrow evening.

Looks like that spot with the great views is the highest point around. Any danger of lighting strikes?

Enjoy your time with the Colorado gang.

It is definitely one of the higher points around here, CCjon! I don't know about the lining strikes but I would not go up there during the storm for sure!

Awesome views, Dom. Always nice to get out and about with you, albeit virtual.
