In the summer from 120F in Las Vegas takes me about 40 minutes to drive to Mt Charleston to walk on the snow most of the year.


On one of the days we saw 88 degrees at just over 11,000 feet !
Much hotter than we were expecting and unlike 2 years ago when we explored Colorado, black flies and mosquitoes everywhere we went.

Day 9 - We leave our roadside overnight spot on Trough Rd and head south to Heaton Bay Campground in the White River National Forest. It was full by 2 pm on a Thursday so we just checked it out and headed for higher altitudes and cooler weather. We stopped in Leadville and checked with the visitor center where we were told about Halfmoon Campground and the availability of dispersed camping along the forest road leading to the campground. We found a nice spot but only spent the one night as it was also plagued by black flies and mosquitoes. When will it end ?

Sounds like a fun trip, I’d suggest staying out of campgrounds for the next trip here, at least some of your nights. There’s lot’s of legal dispersed camping here in Western Colorado. I’d be happy to suggest some spots in our side of the state.
