Our Second Day at Yellow Pine, Hwy 150, and a New Camp

We are up at first light, and it’s a crystal clear morning; bright blue sky and clean fresh air. I begin the usual morning routine: A quick potty run for the boys, get coffee going, their breakfast, a cup of coffee, and then my breakfast, the usual; oatmeal with chopped fruit (this morning that’s dried apricots), coconut, and a few walnuts. All that seemingly done while still in the sleep coma.
While enjoying a second cup of caffeine, the boys let me know that it’s time to get outside. I leash them up and we take a walk through bushes and grass trying to get to the river. It becomes too wet so we hike back up to the dirt road and meander from our camp up to the highway and back and make several rounds around the loop that signifies the last places to camp in this dispersed camping area.

 

Big puffy white cumulus clouds—sheep wool clouds—begin to form in early afternoon. The boys are napping. I work on the blog, read, and take a short nap myself. It’s just a laid back day, like most of my days are now, and I feel very blessed.

Sunday

We move camp today, ending up in a beautiful spot in an improved, pay-but-not-yet-open camp. There is no one here, but there’s no gate and no sign saying to keep out so I choose a spot. It appears it is kept open so travelers can use the vault toilets and there are a few who drive down into Sulphur Camp Ground to do just that.

The boys check out their new back yard, and it’s gorgeous.

Hey, Charlie, look at our new digs!!!

A beautiful creek—Provo Creek I think—burbles and laughs its way through the campground. Creek through our Sulphur Camp. Bear River I think

There are many wildflowers in bloom here. It’s a beautiful spot

The day is pretty much a threepeat of our enjoyment along this scenic byway. It’s definitely laid back, and much the same routine as the two previous days, but I do manage to get a few minor things done, marking them off my to-do list, and I also get some photos on the computer put into albums and older ones removed from the hard drive and onto a thumb drive. Several long walks with the boys.  Nothing too strenuous!

Thanks for stopping by 2Dogs!
