While this is Boondocking they do have official spots marked off and numbered for people to stay in and you are only supposed to camp is designated spots. The views of gothic mountain, mount crested butte and Washington gulch provide endless sights in all directions. The road getting in is definitely a little bumpy and some potho... more
