Set up as a horse camp, but regular horse-less citizens can camp here also. Plenty of horse shit around, so it appears that horse people do use it!

The actual horse camp in the meadow below is still open for the season. There are four or so vehicles spread out down there, but I elect to post up in my traditional spot "under the trees" on the upper level.

Strange animal calls this evening!

When I wheeled around the corner here I was shocked to see that 6 people in 4 vehicles were already camped here.

The other campers were all in the parallel parking, so I still got my preferred pull-in spot under the tree, so I was happy.

They were very sociable and nice, but I missed my feeling of solitude...

It was 108° at I-5, but a mere 99° here. There are wildfires somewhere in the vicinity, but no sirens or speeding firetrucks, so I think I'm ok. I got attacked by fire ants in my flip flops - ouch!
