Loaded as heavy as we ever have been, because we are carrying all of our supplies that we need to get the campground ready to open, we left Aspen Glade campground and started the steep climb up La Manga Pass. We had recieved the go ahead from our area manager and were moving up to Truijillo Meadows campground ! About one fourth of the way up there was a loud clap of thunder and a heavy slushy sleet fell hard enough that the wipers had to be on high to contend with it. I got so bad that we pulled over and quickly went to four wheel drive high range for the rest of the climb. The rest of the day was much the same. Snow one minute and sunshine the next. The lightning and thunder was a bit disconcerting. Here is a short video look at our campsite.
