It's not hard to tell where there is a spring or a creek in this country as the vegetation is way more dense in those areas.
You can almost see the end of the road from here. I'm not sure why it's called Oak Grove. There is plenty of scrub oak around, but the campground is actually in a stand of pine.
I couldn't get all the way to the campground as the road was gated off near the end. I think my wife read in the newspaper they had closed the campground because the fire danger was so high they didn't want to take a chance.
At this intersection there is a road that head north. I'll have to come back some day and check it out. Since I didn't have a lot of time I headed back down the mountain.
the Indian Paintbrush was blooming.
On the way back down the mountain I decided to stop by Silver Reef and look around some.
To be continued.
