Bill and Mary Ann's truck camper retirement travel blog

We left our Avalanche campground and headed to Carbondale to get food. We were trying to figure where to go next on our adventure. We knew of a great little place in Glenwood Springs for a cheap Mexican lunch so we kept going to Jilbertitos for a carnita torta. One was big enough for us to split and it was just as delicious as we remembered. We had seen on the map a road going out of Dotsero that lead into the

White River Natl Forest and the Flat Tops Wilderness Area. There was a local guy eating at the joint so Bill asked him about the area. He said it was great and that was was where he went hunting. So guess where we went! 29 miles up a dirt road-we went about 15 and stopped as we saw a big storm coming. We are sitting up @ 9000 ft and here comes a storm complete with hail and lightning. The temperature dropped from 91 in Gypsum to 47 up here. We sat in the truck for 2 hrs as this huge storm swept through all of the Rockies from our viewpoint. This drive up rt 600 maybe one of the most spectacular ever. We're going to camp here tonight and then go on to Deep Lake tomorrow since I bought a fishing license and I will catch trout!
