Two Buttes Black Hole campground

:wave First time "Out out" (away from the backyard) in the new Scamp, yesterday. High of 63*; dropped down to about 30* last night. We were the only camper; saw 3 vehicles all day yesterday and this morning. Shadows start creeping toward darkness about 3:30 PM in the canyons.

:wave Bill,

That looks like my kind of place.

Where is “Two Buttes Black Hole campground”? What state is that, S.E. Colorado?

Did you take more photos? I need a 5th Wheel Scamp in a beautiful place like that for the website front page one of these days.

Two Buttes

Two Buttes (the butte, the reservoir, and the black hole) are located in sunny :sunny S.E. Colorado, about 30 miles south of Lamar and about 5 miles off of US 287. The town of Two Buttes is a little further.
The Black Hole area is just below the reservoirs dam, and is one of the many canyon areas which most people driving thru the area never realize is out there, as the countryside looks relatively flat from the highway. The canyons are popular for hikers and petroglyph exlorers, along with the occasional fisherman or hunter; the area even has a couple of geocaches for "GPS-ers". Two Buttes Reservoir itself gets its water from a relatively small run-off area, so has rather low water levels most years.

Looks like fun!

Looks like my kinda camping Bill!

Did you have electricity?

We were able to get out for one night this past weekend too.

Temperature "soared" to near 50F (10C) ... Didn't bring my shorts, but Pam made me keep my pants on!

She told me it was the last campout of the year (dang it!) ... but then she said it's only 2 weeks until we start camping in the new year .... 2003!

Nothing like a January campout!

Boy, that really looks great. I would imagine that it is really quiet, too.

Your comment: '...one of the many canyon areas which most people driving thru the area never realize is out there...' reminds me of the trek between Cheyenne and Laramie, Wyoming. Driving along the interstate, no one would ever guess what beauty lies just north. Vedauwoo (Medicine Bow National Forest) is really a beauty. Anyone going from Cheyenne to Laramie should take Happy Jack Road (assuming it is still there) as you will get to see so much.

I've heard that in those areas you actually go down into the mountains rather than up into them like most places! ;) Or at least that's what I've heard tourist say.

Thanks for the pics

Dry camp

This was our first dry camp, as well.

If you want a *really dry* camp, trek out into the Great Sand Dunes NM for a nite in the dunes -- That's dry! Neat place.
