It was mid afternoon when I drove North on Interstate Hwy 25 from Trinidad to Pueblo, Colorado. I turned West on US Hwy 50 to find an emergency legal camp in the mountains cuz I had no chance of making it to my primary camp in the Gunnison N Forest, West of the Continental Divide.
Somewhere near Canon City, Colorado I made a stop on the Arkansas River for a short photo shoot and to enjoy the flowing river. Somewhere on the Arkansas River I must have passed near a trading post from George Simpson established in the mid 1800s...now long gone.
After dark, still on US Hwy 50, I saw a sign for Forest Service access in the San Isabel National Forest (on the East side of Monarch Pass on the Continental Divide) where I made my safe camp for the night near the dirt road. There would be nor more hotels, prepared food, or pubs for this camping adventure. I did sleep very well.
