My new Boondocking spot in the Pike national forest.
This morning I drove up to some Boondocking sites that I've stayed at before and found the whole area devoid of people and RVs. This made my day because I had lots of spots to pick from and was able to get in a nice spot with plenty of sunshine.
It's going to get pretty chilly here at night, probably in the mid-thirties because I'm up around 9000 feet and even in the summertime nights are a little cool at this altitude. But daytimes are supposed to be real nice in the sixties and I don't think I will be in the area very long, maybe just a week or so.
The leaves are pretty much gone off of the trees where I'm at so everything is kind of brown and dead looking right now. And because of that, and the chilly nights, I'm starting to really look forward to heading south and getting into some warmer weather. And I think that's the way it's supposed to be when you're a full-timer. I don't want to leave an area because I have to, I want to leave an area because I want to and I'm looking forward to being in a new place.
I don't know what these bushes are called but there kind of neat. The seeds are attached to those fuzzy spiral things and when the wind comes up it blows the seeds away.
The green thing is the seed and at the right time the brown husk opens up and the 1st wind that comes along sends the seeds spiraling off to find a new home
