Cortez, Co/Canyon of the Ancients

Early spring planning on trying to explore Cortez area. Does anyone know of any easy to get to, centralized boondocking or dry camping spots. Thanks

RE: Do you ever go foraging?

When dry camping in Alaska we ran out of salad and vegetables and were low on meat. I found some morel mushrooms, and dandelions. I also caught some grayling. Made a salad from the dandelion leaves cooked the mushrooms and grayling and it was a delicious meal. I found some lions mane(mushroom) last year while camping in NH that was very good. When I used to backpack I found you could cook the dandelion leaves in water and they taste similar to spinach. Always find berries and some wild apple trees. Make apple jacks and add berries to pancakes. Awesome. Some of those meals are the best.

RE: Spokane WA

Riverside State Park is missing sewer but it's close to downtown Spokane and nice scenery. x2

RE: USA RV Park in NM

Haven't been there, but we have a trip planned for that area next spring and I'm looking at staying at McGee Park (At the fairgrounds) None of the parks have great reviews unfortunately.

RE: Traveling without a car

I use to follow a gal who had a Toadless Blog and she had great hints on going toadless. We have never had a toad, but we drive a Class B so haven't needed one.

RE: Do you ever go foraging?

We just ordered Southwest Foraging as spend more time there than anywhere and while I know the desert southwest isn't the best place, we have always been adventurous eaters and think it will be fun to learn what is edible out there. Here in the Northwest fiddle fern and nettles are common and we have tried them both and well maybe it was the way we cooked them but not impressed. The nettles weren't bad, just not much flavor but the fern was pure disgusting IMO

RE: Yellowstone: Cody to Gardiner

We took Cody to Gardiner last July and except for heavy traffic and lots of road construction and a buffalo who had the right of way and took his sweet time getting off the road, it was fine. It seems to me that there are boondocking sites between Cody and the park entrance. We had reservations so I can't help with winging it.

RE: Mt. Rushmore and Yellowstine around July 4

Both will be crowded and busy. Go early to get parking spaces.

Do you ever go foraging?

We always like to forage when we are boondocking and on our hikes. Once in Oregon we found some water cress that was so delicious and often we pick berries. I know some folks like fiddle head ferns but I tried them once and thought they were nasty tasting. What about nettles?

Paying for public campgrounds

Just wondering about paying for public campgrounds. I am thinking mostly about places like Forest Service and BLM campgrounds that may just have a pay box and not an office. Do you bring cash, pay with checks or credit card? I can see disadvantages to each of them.

RE: Crater Lake

I love Crater Lake. We were there once when the snow was over our heads. (But we camped in Klamath Falls

Ward Charcoal Ovens State Park

For some reason I can't find much about this campground at all. We want to go in the fall and I'm wondering if anyone knows if there is water available, flush or vault toilets, a visitors center?

Thanks all

Water in or around Moab

We are coming in from Capitol Reef, spending some time boondocking or dry camping near Moab and then on to Canyonlands. Wondering where we can find water in Moab or if finding water in Moab will be a problem.

RE: Washington National Parks-- route recommendations?

If you go to the Mt. Baker area in Sept., save some time for picking huckleberries and wild mountain blueberries! Just keep an eye out for black bear.

RE: Great Basin NP RV Camping

Great Basin is on our bucket list also and plan to head there next fall. There are three campgrounds that are listed, Upper Lehman Creek, Wheeler Peak and Baker Creek. (We need accessible sites so I have them listed) I think Wheeler is closed in winter but the other two are open all year, but don't quote me. Happy travels, and please let me know how you enjoyed it.

RE: I have 1 week

I wouldn't base in Rapid City, I'd base in Custer. Its 20 minutes to everything on your list except the Badlands and thats about 2 hours.

RE: Washington National Parks-- route recommendations?

If I were you I would take Hwy 2 from Glacier and not miss Coulee Dam which will be a little side trip, and Lake Chelan which will also be a bit of a side trip but well worth it, especially if you can take the ferry ride up the lake. But stay on Hwy 2 and check out Whidbey Island and from there take the ferry over to Port Townsend. That way you can buy pass Seattle and you might get to see some whales. After making the Olympic Peninsula loop until you hit the Hwy 12 sign and turn off there and go to Mt. Rainier. Hwy 12 takes you to the Paradise side.
