The campground host said at our group campsite "park anywhere" and we took her up on it!

Hmmmmmm.... my opinion... sooo not cool...

Again, it's just my opinion... but if I asked if it's OK to gather firewood in a Park and was told OK, just don't cut any living trees so I cut up the picnic table... sorta the same excuse for common sense.. (I've seen both tables and bollards cut up in campgrounds, it does happen)

While I put in new 4x4 routes to the tent camping spots at Sugarite there was big news just across the state line in Trinidad, Colorado.
Governor Polis announced the purchase of what will be the second largest park in Colorado- the Crazy French/Fisher's Peak swath of land near the border of New Mexico and Sugarite.
With other existing protected lands this will be 50 square miles or so of open space just a few miles off I-25!

Man, I'm so jealous. If/when I ever get this dream van of mine put together, I am definitely doing an extended tour through Alaska.

You may or may not be familiar with Hyder Seek. It's kind of an exclusive long distance motorcyle rally. Basically, riders from all over the country meet up in Hyder Alaska for the sole purpose of having lunch. I have a friend who did that meet one year. We're both IBA members, a long distance motorcycling club,

I didn't think the Hyder campground was anything to write home about. It was junky and uneven. It was also wet and puddly when I was there. But it was all worth it to see the bears in the national forest elevated boardwalk along a stream just outside of the town.
