Stillwell Mountain on Fire?
« on: June 03, 2011, 12:51:27 PM »
Must have been a lightning strike.  Still unconfirmed, but confidence remains high.  Spoke with someone yesterday who said it was likely.

I camped a few years back at Campsite #9 of BGWMA in the shadows of Stillwell Mountain.  Most excellent campsite.  Takes a 4x4 to get there and will scratch up the paint job pretty good.  Way off the beaten path - long ways back to civilization.  Not even a hint of a cell signal.  Totally and utterly on your own.  No shade ramada, just a fire ring.

Damn, it was cold there too.  Way down into the single digits.  That one pic of the tent illustrates how damn cold it was and I was sick as a dog with tonsillitis and bronchitis at the same time.   :vomit:  I made it back home in record time.
