Sojourn in an aspen jungle

08 Jul

Yeah, so I haven’t posted in a while.  That’s mainly because we’ve been on an extended camping trip in the Manti-La Sal National Forest.  We took the old motorhome and camped along Skyline Drive at the top of Fairview Canyon.

Skyline Drive snakes through one of the largest aspen forests in the state.  There are no improved campgrounds there.  No picnic tables or water fill-up stations or grumpy campground hosts.  Nope, just dirt roads in an aspen jungle.  Beautiful place.  Here are a few pics:
