Fort Uncompahgre, Delta, Colorado

Garden at Fort Uncompahgre, Delta, Colorado


Continuing on US50 we headed for Delta, Colorado and the Four Seasons River Inn and RV Park (about 63 miles). We will be staying there for a couple of days to visit a museum and pick up our mail.

In July we put 1546 miles on our house and 881 miles on our Jeep.

8/1 - 8/2

In Delta, Colorado there is a reproduction of Fort Uncompahgre, located about 1.5 miles from the original location. The original fort was used for fur trading and was active between 1826 and 1844. The fort reproduction included rooms for boarders, a kitchen and baking oven, blacksmith shop, and of course the store where the trading took place. A very impressive garden was outside the kitchen wall. The caretaker gave us some pointers on what to see along US50 as we head through Colorado.
