|Our tent is nestled in the Junipers at Windwhistle Campground.|
|Evening shadows in our campsite.|
|Towering sandstone cliffs.|
|Along the nature trail in Windwhistle campground.|
The following morning we rode our tandem bicycle from the campground to the Needles Overlook, a 32 mile round-trip ride on a paved road.
|Needles Overlook at the end of the road.|
|Standing at the edge. It's a 1000 foot drop-off into the canyon|
on the other side of this fence.
That evening our treats included s'mores around the campfire and a creamy white milky way spilling from horizon to horizon. After crawling into the tent a Great-Horned Owl serenaded us to sleep with his soothing deep-toned hoots.
|Ready for s'mores as darkness falls.|
Did we hear the wind whistling through the Juniper trees surrounding our site during this visit? No. Our calm clear days and nights prevented us from experiencing the reason for this campground's alluring name.
That discovery will have to wait for the next visit.
|The campground is located on Needles Outpost road, about half-way down this map.|
