You can see snow on the mountain and we hoped to find a little snow. But no such luck.
About 10 minutes in, the rock formations begin to get more interesting.
Then you start to see more green on the ground instead of just brown and cactus.
Wow....Pine trees! A real mountain feeling is starting to happen.
Each curve in the road (which is NOT real curvy!) yields an even better mountain experience.
In about 30 minutes you are at the ranger station at Kyle Canyon. This is a campground. There are tents, 5th wheels, and trailers in this park. When you step out of the car, the fresh pine smell and cool temperature fills you with that perfect mountain experience.
Of course, Smoky the Bear was there!
I'm holding an interesting brochure about the Spring Mountains, elevations, campsites, history, etc.
A friendly tourist snapped our picture.
The road goes on a little farther. We did not continue on to the other campsites. We did not find snow. But, we were sure we would not reach any snow according to the map.
Can you find Lyle?
