The people at the Rawlins RV World Park were very nice. Their write up in the Passport Book is so negative that we almost didn't stay there. I wonder if people know how negative they sound sometimes by listing all the "shall nots" in their description.
We didn't sleep too well as the park is right on the frontage road next to the interstate exit and trucks were hitting their jake brakes most of the night.
We went to breakfast at the Flying J and filled up on fuel. They serve a pretty good breakfast buffet.
We have crossed the Continental Divide about 3 or 4 times. That is because the roads go straight and the mountains don't or that the mountains go in one direction and the roads curve around them. Anyway the picture is the first time we crossed it. It also varies in height - the highest was 7257 if I remember right. All in all we feel like we have driven across the top of the world. The views have been fantastic.
Copied from the campground information sheet:
"What possible connection does Rawlins have with the Brooklyn Bridge and Thomas Edison? Well, the original paint on the bridge was Rawlins Red, created from red rock pigment mined just north of the city. And, it is said, Edison conceived the idea for the light bulb filament while fishing at Battle Lake in the Sierra Madre south of the city."
