Grouse Ridge Camping

Ann and I went camping in a new spot last weekend with Colin and Chelsea. The five miles of bumpy road was a little painful for Ann, but she was still able to do a few short sub-mile hikes. I’m full of hope that this marks the beginning of a real healing period for her.

The area turned out to be just the kind of place we treasure – a high ridge with great views, a free campground, and fewer people than we expected. The lakes in and rocky crags in this place rival Desolation Wilderness to the south. Check ’em out.
