This site is raw and beautiful. It was my first time solo camping and first time camping in such cold weather, but I loved it thoroughly. I drove in at sunset, camped in my car for the night, then woke up to a breathtaking sunrise. It is really special to wake up with almost no signs of the manmade world around you.
I explored the rocky mound, which afforded an incredible panoramic view of the valley. And took photos to my hearts content.
I'd recommend arriving during daylight for sure, since the dirt road is patchy and narrow. Definitely wake up for sunrise, and bring lots of layers! Everything was covered in ice when I went in November.
But all in all, a beautiful and impactful experience for me.
