Camp Hale used to be a WWII training ground to get soldiers used to winter conditions. They trained soldiers to ski, rock climb, shoot, and to endure harsh winter weather. Now it is a giant forest service area with camp grounds and lots of dirt roads and trails. Alan and I went a while ago and experienced some nasty rain. I managed to snap a few photos, but didn't take nearly as many as I wanted due to weather and my jeep started making an odd sound that freaked me out. Alan had to make on site repair. It was a fun campground, and I hope to go back some day to enjoy some trails we didn't get to do.
