The Xscapers SoCo Convergence is located in a beautiful spot. Set 2,000 feet lower in elevation than Leadville, the climate is distinctly dryer. The tall lodgepole and aspen forest farther north is replaced here by open fields complete with cactus and more sparse and shrubby pinon pine. This makes it easier to see the mountains surrounding camp on all sides. The openness also makes my solar panel happy, and the lower elevation means nights are frost-free.
Our boondocking area is located northwest of Poncha Springs, Colo. From 50 west of town you turn north onto country road 250 and drive until the pavement ends, that’s where the public land starts. The Xscampment is in an open field on a small rise offering a view of Salida to the east. Winds frequently buffet camp, but it’s a small price to pay for this view.
