Drove up to the 9018h Y. Checking out campsites, I counted 25 before I turned around. A city Fire truck and ambulance shot by and down 9018h. Don't know what was about but it was surprising to see a motorhome size fire engine flying up the hill. Most spots had campers as it was the last day of Overland expo #2022. Can't wait to go back & camp

Good trail, found a good camp spot after the expo. One thing I was not a fan about was one of the original camp spot I was going to be staying at was completely trashed and spent about half an hour trying to clean up
