I'm not one to pass up the opportunity for a lame joke. So when I saw Hades Campground
on the map, I had to go. It's along the North Fork of the Duchesne River, near Hanna, Utah.
It's an attractive, well-maintained campground, not hellish at all. It was nearly empty when I arrived, but almost all the sites were booked for the weekend and the Labor Day weekend. It was Thursday, so I lucked out.
There were oaks on the mountainside that had turned to their fall colors already, and wranglers were moving their cattle down out of the higher country. I took these signs as nature's hint it was time for me to start migrating to warmer climates. But not all the way to hell.
Willing to bet there were many meetings and a ridiculous portion of the budget spent by the government for them to debate about whether or not to actually keep that/come up with that as a campground name. Like the link in your other post, do we lose/add the H or not? Made me chuckle regardless of the origin.ReplyDelete
