West ridge of Frazier Mountain, LPNF - "a recent lightning strike"

 Drove past Chucupate Campground and then up Frazier Mountain to escape the heat and spend some time outside in cool air.
 The gate was open and our route was clear.
 We wound our way through a shadow speckled forest.
 Passed evidence of a recent lightning strike.
 Set up camp at about 7,500 feet.
 Went on a short hike just before sunset and then returned to camp to read enjoying the cool night air.
 The early light of sunrise found us hiking the forest west of camp following the faint track of an old road. In the same area 30 years ago following another faint old road I found an old mining camp but no such luck on this hike.
After reaching a small meadow we reversed our course and returned to camp.
Soon it was time to drive the speckled forest once again and return home.


  1. Looks like a great trip! I was wondering about your fuel economy with the camper on the Tacoma and how it handles? Does it feel overloaded? I have an f250 fright now but would like a smaller truck to be able to access more places.

    1. Tacoma does not feel overloaded and handles very well on and off road.
      Thanks for commenting Joshua.
