Another camping trip in the books. This time we ventured into the State Forest State Park area on the west side of Highway 14/Poudre Canyon Drive over Cameron Pass, near Gould, Colorado.
The images below were captured on a side trip up to Long Draw Reservoir Road towards Peterson Lake near Chambers Lake at the top of Cameron Pass. I think there were more cars on this dirt road than on the paved Highway 14. But it was an awesome side trip with lots of animals under perfect lighting conditions.

Here’s the iconic Bryce National Park shot, Inspiration Point. This is the mostly East looking view. There’s a whole other section to the left of this shot I’ll later on….

Spent Memorial Day weekend camping at North Sterling State Park in the NE corner of Colorado. I would highly recommend staying at this campground too. Beautiful surroundings, clean and well kept campground without all the riff-raff and noise found at Jackson Lake State Park.
We got an extra surprise Saturday night with the highly unexpected appearance of the Aurora Borealis to boot! Very faint, but check the bottom two images. Notice the movement of the lighter, cloud-like waves.
