:lmao

Camp at Emmigrant Campground (free and has flush toilets and sinks). Hope there are spots open for camping. There's also a campground at Stovepipe Wells, but lots of RVs. That's the backup for Fri night.

There's another place we can go Sat if Emmigrant is full, but its off of a dirt road, and 2WD can make it.

More later.

for those of us who like to peak bag - Pinto is accessable as well as Skiddoo or Tucki with a little extra driving. I'm for bagging Pinto incl viewing some reported plane wreckage near the top. also chance to view jayhawker canyon - chance for some history photos there. let's hope this nice weather can hold

No dogs allowed on the trails.....even on leash. I guess my best friend and I will have to go elsewhere. Y'all have a good time!

I may be able to get "family leave" that weekend. And if you camp at Emigrant, this time I'll even be able to find you! :)
