The Bristol Mountains

Here are a few photo's of my camping trip this past weekend just north of the Bristol Mountains. The Bristol Mountains are a large area of moderate bare rocky peaks that span the 40 between Ludlow and Kelbaker Rd. Amboy is a crater on the northwest "shore" of Bristol Lake (dry) and everything from there north and east are the Bristol's.

I had a spectacular view of the Granite Mountains, the Providence Mountains, the Kelso Mountains, the Clark Mountains north of the 15 on the Nevada border and the Kelso Dunes at the south end of Devil's Playground (Soda Lake). Ted, Gunner, and I hiked up to the site of a rough cabin Saturday morning, but then the wind came up and blew down my tarp. It was predicted to increase so I packed up and headed for Idyllwild.

Warning---if you hit a patch of deep sand in the roadway---a two-hundred yard patch---don't slow down. Push harder on the gas pedal even if you get sideways and spinning the steering wheel back and forth causes your hand to knock the windshield wipers on. Fortunately, I doubled down and kept my foot on the gas until I cleared the deep stuff and did not get stuck.

There was a fire on the mountain north of Hwy 243 as I drove out this morning. The winds were up and I hope things are okay in Idyllwild.
