Fortyfive miles up the road you arrive at the Tombstone Campground. We
camped therefor the nite and spent a enjoyable evening. The surroundings
are beautiful, but don't drink the water out of the creek, it's blacker
than a welldigger's butt. It has something to do with the rocks it
runs through further up in the hills. There were a
few mosquitoes around , but nothing major, at least not
until you get farther north.
The campground is
right in a grove of sprucetrees, nicely sheltered.
A couple of miles up the road is the North Fork Pass, you stop on
top and have a look around.
Just of the road is a bit of a creek, it still had about five feet
of ice in places. This was in July.
the last picture is a sharp mountain far in the background,
that is Tombstone
Mountain after which the whole area is named.
