This is our current RV site in Woodland Park, CO. This is a nice park, nicest in the area for the space and money. The people are friendly but it rains everyday so being outside doesn't happen very often.
We took a drive Wednesday, stopped for a wonderful BBQ lunch which we ate in the truck to stay dry. The little BBQ place didn't have inside seating and the rain came, of course. What looks like snow ( and 43 degree temp) is actually hail and was a few miles ahead of us on our way to the mining town of Cripple Creek. Cripple Creek now mines tourist wallets when they visit the many casinos, guess the gold in them thar hills is all gone!
(We did see a lot tailings from the mining that still goes on and they do still get gold.)
The third pic is of the South Platte River, about fifteen miles from Woodland Park at the 11 Mile Canyon.
This is a gorgeous area and appears to be a favorite spot with fly fishermen. The road is dirt and narrow, in spots the edge has washed away, a concern when passing another vehicle and the dually's on our truck. Made me nervous anyway. Hopefully we'll get back there in a few days and Dave can try his luck with the fly rod. I enjoy the scenery and getting to the river's edge.
Til next time, be safe and may God Bless!
