I was going to make my camp at the pay campground at Canjilon Lakes. I was sad that the large aspen trees were gone so I drove on to find a new camp. I drove East on FS 110 through a nice forest. The road conditions got poor so I had to drive my old truck slower. I drove over a mountain pass called Mogote Ridge; then it was an easy downhill drive. Not far down from the ridge I found a nice large legal dispersed camp where I parked under a large Colorado Blue Spruce in a Ponderosa Pine forest for the night. This camp was large enough for a group camp, and I had it all to myself. It cooled off very nicely, and I slept well.

The next morning I had a nice long coffee break and did a general cleanup of myself. I broke camp and continued South on FS 110. I passed FS 106 and has a splendid drive down El Rito Creek canyon through marked Carson NF and private land. I reached the small town of El Rito and then had to drive on paved roads.
