Grass Mats

Great looking camping spot! We have used the front rack for our bikes before but not on this trip. Mostly I use it for tables, kitchen sink, chairs, etc. Of course everything must be strapped in securely. We bought our grass mats at Home Depot, I think they were around $15.00 each. Not too many bugs up where we were...maybe a few flies and such but no mosquitoes. We bought the EZ-Up shade cover at Sam's Club. It came with fully enclosable walls but we seldom use them. I'd like to get some screen walls for it in case we ever encounter an area with bugs.

Yes, the bears are nothing to play around with, they are extremely strong as the photo suggests. That steel dumpster lid was quite thick...I can't believe that even a bear could bend it like that. Amazing.

I used a Astroturf style carpet a few items until it got rain and mud soaked at one trip. Packing it up that was was unpleasant because it retained water and the dirt did not shake out when dry. We went for a open weave polypropylene mat after that and the water passed right through. There are undoubtedly differences in the turf style carpets, so be aware.

Camping in Colorado

We're heading back up to this place the week after the fourth of July. The weekenders will have mostly gone home by then and the camp will be peaceful and serene. Ahhhhhh....just the way I like it!

Thanks,
The Vallecito area has a lot of campgrounds, but I like to keep that on the down low. It's one of the few places in my area that is beautiful and not too crowded, I'd like to keep it that way.
