My boondocking spot at a national forest campground just outside of Frisco Colorado
I pulled out of Denver about 9:30 this morning and got to the town of Frisco Colorado before lunch. And at the moment I'm boondocking at a National Forest campground about 100 yards from Dillon reservoir just outside of Frisco.
The traffic heading West on I 70 was pretty bad, but it seems to be that way no matter when I go anywhere. It's a looong uphill pull when you leave Denver heading for the mountains and the slow moving trucks, and large RVs kind of keep everybody bunched up and moving slow until you cross the Continental divide at the Eisenhower tunnel.
I'm up about 9000 feet so the high temperature for today was in the mid-50s, which despite what you might think, was actually pretty comfortable, between the very low humidity and the sunshine keeping things warm I was in a T-shirt for most of the day.
I stopped in Frisco because I wanted to visit Breckenridge which is just down the road, and since Breckenridge is a famous ski town I don't think I would be able to find anywhere in that area to stay that's even remotely affordable. But despite being a world-famous ski area, it's also a historic mining town which should offer me some picture taking opportunities.
the Eisenhower tunnel goes under the Continental divide. You enter on the eastern slope.
And come out on the western slope at about 11,000 feet
Dillon reservoir, Frisco is on the other side of the lake
The little Bronco with the pop top up. It's ready to be lived in, I haven't slept in it yet it will be interesting to see how that goes.
