Campsite eighteen, Aspen Glade campground. Nestled down deep in the Conejos canyon, right beside the Conejos River, just off of Highway seventeen, about halfway between Antonito Colorado and Chama New Mexico. Elevation 8500 feet.
Here is a look at the giant Ponderosa Pine that stands silent sentinel at the entrance to our campsite.
Spaced widely apart in a picturesque setting.
With full hookups. It is a fantastic place to await the snow’s melt off up high at our campground in Trujillo Meadows.
Note that the Trout filled Conejos River is right there in the immediate background. This photo was taken just as you turn off of highway 17. The lower loop of the campground has many sites that back in within 25 yards of the river.
