It was chilly again last night, and windy, but the sun is warm on my first morning at Mid Hills campground
I'm not a huge fan of developed campgrounds, but I often camp here because I like it so much. This is my first time at site #9. Old-growth juniper-pine forest on one side of my tent, a landscape that burned during the 2005 brush fires on the other.
