Camping at Piedra Blanca
Camping at Piedra Blanca

We returned yesterday from an overnighter at the Twin Forks campground on the Piedra Blanca trail. Luckily, the skies were overcast Friday as we hiked in, otherwise it would have been a scorcher.

The white rocks are beautiful and the trail is excellent. On our way in we met a trail-building crew complete with five pack horses. They had been working up around the Pine Mountain Lodge area.

It's It's about a 4 mile hike to the Piedra Blanca camp, and another half mile to the Twin Forks camp, where we stayed. The camp was great, well shaded with a good clean stream running nearby.

I saw a couple of dear, and there was a water snake in Piedra Blanca creek, but otherwise we didn't encounter any critters.

Linda made a beautiful bouquet out of plants growing around the camp.
