Jun 25, 2018 - 80 miles ????? Whaaaaaaaat?
We did it!! I was hoping we could go the distance today and we did! A beautiful cloudless Colorado blue sky day!! Colorado put its best out there for us to encourage us to get this done today! The only real reason it is important to get as far as Kremmling today is to try and meet up with Mike's sister Mary Jane who has been vacationing in Breckenridge for the past week with her family! Before the trip started, we knew the dates, just had no idea where we would be in mid June and as we got closer and the possibility of meeting up with them...Jump to full entry
Jun 6, 2017 - Day 38 - Walden to Kremmling, CO
Today’s excursion to Kremmling, CO was a grand 77-mile ride with 3,045’ of ascent. Kremmling, population 1,444 and elevation 7,313’, sits on the Colorado River in an arid section of Middle Park basin. The town was originally Kinsey City.

Jun 22, 2016 - Golden to Kremmling
Golden to Kremmling Day 34 – Monday June 20 We departed the RV Park in Golden at 10 am and expected to arrive in Kremmling about 12 noon—our route was I-70 west over Loveland Pass to Dillon (55 miles) then north on SR 9 to Kremmling (38 miles) or 93 miles total. But that isn’t what happened. Just after we passed Idaho Springs Maryann saw a sign that indicated 45 minute construction delays on SR 9 between Dillon and Kremmling and advised an alternate route. The alternate route is US 40 over Berthoud Pass with a steep climb to the top at...Jump to full entry
Sep 19, 2015 - Kremmling, Colorado
Our desire to see fall foliage in Colorado is being fulfilled if we just don't get too much winter weather before we leave! Here in Kremmling we have had snow showers in the forecast which did not materialize and freezing temperatures at night that did happen. As you can tell from the photos, it is worth the inconvenience to see these beautiful golden trees. Our next challenge is to cross two passes to get to the Fort Collins area. Our timing may be good as the forecast for early next week is for above average temperatures. We just don't...Jump to full entry
Jun 10, 2009 - Fossils, Snow, and Rainbows!
What a day! It was so worth the wait this morning to go to the fossil quarry. It was absolutely neat and so much fun. We were waiting at the gate at opening time, 10:00, but it wasn't open. In a few minutes I called the number on the sign and received an apology for the manager being late. She was there in about 5 minutes. Normally it wouldn't have been a big deal, but remember we needed to leave at the latest 11:15 to get back to the rv park to check out at noon and hook up the car and leave. We all could have stayed there all day. The...Jump to full entry
May 4, 2008 - Day 22: Kremmling Rocky Mountain NP West Side
Day 22 Sunday 4th May, Kremmling (Rocky Mountain NP. West side) Today has been a day of pleasant surprises. After paying $42 for last night’s site, we reaped some of the benefits this morning with a nice sunny day and blue sky. The sun on the snow capped mountains eased the pain a little. Because the only road from east to west in the Rocky Mountain NP is closed (6’- 8’ snow), we had to back track to where we started yesterday morning. That wasn’t a problem, as it gave chance to recap on what we saw yesterday and also have another look at...Jump to full entry
