This campground I say is near Stanley that is because it is not near anything! Stanley is about 28 miles north of here and that is where you go for gas, grocery’s and cell signal! LOL We are passing through Stanley tomorrow when we are on our way to see several ghost towns (former mining towns) and I told Mike he needs to pull over in a parking lot so I can post this and check e mail.
We are camped next to a little lake called Martin’s Lake. It is small, there is a trail that goes around the whole lake and I really think it was under a mile. Here are photos from the campground and the hike around the lake.
We didn’t have the shade awning out today until this afternoon. First place we have been where it wasn’t too windy to have it out most of the day.
Last nights entertainment – the scrabble game. There are not a lot of people camped here and it is a very quite campground – peaceful, you can hear the wind in the trees and the noises of the little critters in the area (ground squirrels, birds and chipmunks).
Mike won’t play scrabble without the dictionary – he says I make up words!! me ?
A view from the short distance to the lake from the campsite:
This is how close we are to the lake – I am at the lake and turned around to take this picture of the campsite, see our camper there among the trees:
A plant growing near a marshy area by the lake – the leaves on this plant looked a lot like a hosta. It even had flower buds at the top like they do. I wonder what it is? It was the only one I saw in the entire area:
A bridge to cross the marshy area:
The lake! beautiful.
This campground has no facilities other than several water pumps and several outhouses (clean outhouses). So we are roughing it :) thank heavens for the propane that works the heat for early morning, the refrigerator, stove, hot water heater LOL really roughing it aren’t I? We filled the water tank right before we left the last campground as we knew what this was like. If we start to run low on water I can get nice clean cold water from the pump.
We will leave here on Thursday morning. I’m not sure where next – someplace around Salmon to the northeast of here.
Oh and I managed to complete one more star block for the Star Crazy BOM – we didn’t do much today but sit outside and enjoy the peace and quite
Also we took a short drive this evening to see if we could spot any animals – we saw some elk and some sandhill cranes. Mike got photos and I will get them from him later.
Here is a photo of the Sawtooth Mountain Range of which we are camped near:
