A fun run on the way back from some of the trails in the Buena Vista area. Road is open with many dispersed campsites. Some sites have been blocked off for reclamation but there are still plenty available. Road is in very good condition. The view as you approach the final waypoint is incredible, wide open spaces.

Everything is nice and freshly grated, as of the start of the season it looks like. A few barricades have been put in place to block off some of the illegal area that people have cut. Noticing a bit of activity on the trail, so keep an eye out for smaller vehicles and people hiking about.
