Camping Stop #2

September 27, 2020  •  1 Comment

We agreed we didn't want to do the 6 hour slog back home all in one day so decided to "try out" another state park along the way.  Made reservations and took a shot.  Well it was "okay" but I think we decided if we stay again, we go for the "higher up the hill" spot reservations not where we were.  It was super tight and not one site in the entire campground was even close to level (for you campers out there think at least 2-4 blocks).   We also discovered that the great majority of the sites were way shorter than was listed on the reservation site.  NOT COOL!    Don't know that Placid Lake will be a planned stop again if we can avoid it.   Now the area is nice and the scenery was lovely but....

With all that the hope was to put the boats in the water the one day we were there.  The weather had other ideas and with the drizzling rain off and on we turned our sights to exploring in the truck instead.  Boy did we!  We got WAYYY up in the mountains in search of lakes (Lolo National Forest gets our vote for best signage - L&C national forest could take some pointers).    We found a campground we DO want to stay at (sadly not reservable though) and a couple boondocking spots for our list as well - that reminds me I need to get those noted in my camping notebook.

So here are some photos from our explore - most were from the phone so don't judge and yes, rainy and smokey!   PS I have one more "surprise post" for you next.

Is all that standing dead timber from pine beetles (or other deadly pest) or fire?
