SUMMIT COUNTY — Driving along the Dillon Dam Road between Frisco and Dillon this past weekend , I saw Forest Service rangers and campground hosts preparing the Heaton Bay campground for opening. Even though it snowed like crazy through April, the wintry weather will end one of these days, so that means it’s time to dig through the shed or garage and dust off the tent and the sleeping bag. Check out the rest of this photoblog with a little bit of info on some of our favorite spots to enjoy a lazy summer day. Most of the photos are links to more information about the camping areas.

Hot dogs taste best this way.
