If anything, winter biking was more pleasant without playing dodge ball with rushing tourists and campers along the summer-busy, shoulder-less highway.
There were two campgrounds on beautiful Swanzy Lake but neither had campers from California.
He didn't even mind the caravan of slow moving campers and motor homes that crawled along the summer byway, frequently stopping for photos of the majestic scenery before them.
There were numerous other tents in the area, many occupied and others with campers sitting outside enjoying the setting sun.
I almost plucked a little beauty from a nearby tent the other night as her parents partied with other campers several yards away.
