Visiting in Colorado, June 23-25
As I concluded my tour of the national parks west of the Mississippi River, I headed southeast and took advantage of Karen and family's hospitality again in the mountains of Colorado. It so happened that another traveler, Ron, was also there on his way to the northwest ... a serendipitous crossing of paths.
Ron has one of the coolest custom vans that I've seen. It's a Sportsmobile with a "penthouse" top that raises up, a brush guard w/wench, solar panel, a pivoting hitch for when he's hauling his large trailer ... it just looks macho! Inside it's decked out with a bed, microwave, frig/freezer, commode, running water, extra batteries ... luxury!
After a yummy pizza and a pleasant visit, Ron continued on his journey the next morning. During the day Karen, daughter Katie and I went into town for a fun lunch and shopping. I especially enjoyed just sitting on their patio, visiting, checking out the scenery, watching the wildlife and playing with the dogs. What a nice stay!
Thanks to Karen for the hummingbird, cactus, and deer (framed by the arch at the gate) pictures.
