Up, up, up

Having wrapped up a couple of days at Stockton Pass, I decided to explore Highway 366 on the north slope of Mount Graham. (Well, mostly on the north slope, until it crosses to the south side near the 9,000-foot summit.) The atlas showed seven campgrounds and numerous trailheads. The Forest Service site listed the campgrounds as “temporarily closed.” I figured I could at least drive up and see what it was like.

The campgrounds appeared to be open and in use, so maybe the ranger district is just slow updating their listings. The sites were thickly forested, which means great shade but bad solar exposure. I knew the nights would still be subfreezing this time of year. Not for me. But the views were great.
