|Camping in the shadow of Pikes Peak, Colorado|
On a whim and with a nice weekend forecast, we packed the camper after work and headed out to Mueller State Park for our first real winter camping experience in an Airstream. It was about a two and a half hour drive to our destination, so we arrived under starry skies well after dark. The campground was completely empty. I began to worry a little about why we were the only people in the entire Denver and Colorado Springs metro areas this weekend that thought camping in the middle of February at 9500 feet was a good idea.
