Round Valley RV Park
We've enjoyed the slightly higher temperatures and the full hookups this week. Before we leave to head north into Montana we have one more ghost town we want to see. Bayhorse.
The Bayhorse Mill is an amazing structure and stands out once your get closer to the town.
As seen from the other side.
There is now a pine growing up in the middle of this kiln.
We spent an hour or so walking around the town then drove further up the road to see the campground. It was several miles on a very corduroy road that is narrow, steep and rough in many places. I have heard many people bring up large toy-hauler trailers to the lakes. I would never bring our rig up here.
While Steve was pondering, Hurley was pondering how to get him off his potential "toy"!
This stump made an interesting frame of the trail around the lake.
There are two docks to fish from.
The ride back down the mountain was a colorful one.
How cool is this very old bulldozer?
The town museum. Closed for the winter now.
Don't mess with the last remaining residents!
Look at all those silver bars!
Who's that driving?
Heading for warmer weather I'm sure.
We parked and were excited to hike to the top. Well, you can't. And it really was disappointing as there wasn't really a "canyon" either. After viewing it neither of us were impressed. There are other "jumps" in Montana that we'll visit next year.
The sun and clouds made for beautiful skies on the way back home.
I know most of our friends are heading SOUTH, to WARMER weather, but we like to squeeze in some fall color and weather before heading back to California. I even like a little snow too as long as we don't have to drive in it. Montana, here we come!
