Mile High Campground was an excellent choice. It is an extremely beautiful area, its cheap, and it sits right next to Bunches bald W4C/WM-013.
So of course I brought along my radio to make an activation.
Kendall and I arrived and setup our campsite late Saturday morning. I brought an old Eureka tent that belonged to my Grandpa Doogan. I love this tent but it has been at least 10 years since I pitched it last. After a few minutes I finally remembered how to set it up and our campsite was ready.
To reach the trail head you go to the extreme west end of the campground near campsite T4.
there you will find a path with a metal gate.
Continue past the gate for less that 100 yards and then turn right and bushwack up the mountain to the summit. The summit is not very bald as you can see from the picture below

I headed back to camp and spent the rest of the weekend relaxing with Kendall. Here are a few of our pics.
What an Awesome view!
