Aug 1, 2013 - Final Update for this Trip

Tonight is our last night on the road, we plan on being back in Los Alamos tomorrow afternoon. We are staying at a KOA in Colorado City, Colorado. For those of you who travel to Denver, you pass this city everytime, so do we, and I have done so for 63 years on the way to visit family in the Denver area. This time, I decided to see what Colorado City had to offer. This is a very pretty rural area that sits in the foothills of the Greenhorn Mountains.

. I’ll be the first to admit that I was moderately terrified by our departure from Riverview RV Park in Loveland this morning.

Oct 17, 2007 - Colorado City, Colorado

Wednesday, Oct. 17: Finally made it from Santa Fe,NM, to Colorado City, CO. The wind blew so hard, broadsiding the motorhome, that it blew up under the living room slide awning, causing it to unroll and balloon up over the coach. I finally got bungies on each end of the awning to contain it. Made it on to my nephew and niece's (Jim & Sharon Pollock) house by late afternoon and got set-up in their back yard OK. They had a site with full hook-ups waiting for us. We had a great time playing Mexican Train Dominoes and sightseeing with them....
