Yesterday the early wintery front with its freezing temperatures and high winds that has been pushing its way through northern Nevada and Utah continued to dump snow pellets–putting a little kink into our easy-living boondocking plans.
We decided to go ahead and hole up in Angel Creek Campground on Humboldt Wilderness land, off FR 231, 8 miles south of I-80 (MM 351). Elevation 6,800 feet.
Once again we were the only RVers there. We parked in a thicket of Aspens. This would have been a breath-taking site two weeks ago.
Temperatures dipped into the teens, high winds really put us into the deep freeze. Propane heater was worth its weight in gold. This spot closes for season on 10/31. Vaulted toilets, no water. $8 night, $4 Senior Pass. 18 tent/RV sites.
Heading toward Zion National Park–will stop somewhere along the way at an RV campground with hook-ups. Time for a long hot shower.
