The wife and I have two weeks off and will be heading out to BBNP right after Christmas. We were there to kick off 06 and couldn't think of any place we'd rather be to start 07. The night sky, in fact, this entire Park is simply awesome.
We met an older couple from Wisconsin (?) in a Scamp
fiver last year who said they'd been visiting BB for several years around the Holidays. IIRC, they were both in their early 80's and the wife still jogged each day. The husband said his knees were giving him a bit of trouble and he could only walk the distance. I only wish.
We'll probably spend Thursday and Friday nights at the Cottonwood campground and the remainder of our visit in the Basin (site 42 Sat-Thr).
Anyone else planning to be there around the first of the year? If so, be sure to stop by.
