A Weekend at Thomas Canyon

We spent the weekend of June 3rd 4th and 5th 2011, in our fifth wheel Dry Camping at the Thomas Canyon Campground. Thomas Canyon is Located in the Humbolt-Toyabe National Forest South East of Elko, Nevada and 8.2 miles from Lamoille, Nevada off of Highway 227 in the Lamoille Canyon Recreation area. The weather cooperated and we did not get snowed or rained on although it was chilly when we arrived on Friday around 2 PM. We checked in and got setup in our camp site and waited for the rest of our party to arrive. Thomas Canyon is very scenic and a nice peaceful place to camp. There are hiking trails and a creek that runs through the Camp ground with fishing and lots of birds and animals to enjoy. We had a nice time and the younger Generation in our party had a good time around the campfire at night roasting hotdogs and marshmallows. Everyone had a good time and enjoyed the Dinners that were cooked by the wives. Sunday Morning a bunch of us went Hiking up to the snow line and a small waterfall. About 2:00Pm Sunday we broke camp and got ready to head for home as it was supposed to snow. all went well until I was pulling out of the campground on a winding road and a very sharp curve, when I had a collision with a large boulder and some trees, doing considerable damage to the 5th wheel. The Truck was not hurt and there were no injuries. I am thankful for that. Anyway that is another story.
