Jun 13, 2017 - La Veta, Colorado Area

We dropped anchor here at Circle the Wagons RV Park in La Veta, Colorado yesterday afternoon and will stay 3 nights. No TV reception here (we do not have satellite)so the only way we get news is via the internet. Luckily, the wifi in the park is pretty good. Cell phone reception is pretty good too. Today, the wind is blowing 25 miles per hour with gusts up to 40. It was too windy to hike so we took a nice drive ion the countryside. We put the truck through its paces along a route called Pass Creek Loop. Running about 70 miles, the road...

Sep 12, 2016 - La Veta, Colorado

We left Fun Valley and South Fork yesterday morning. We moved the RV 105 miles east to La Veta, CO. There is not much here, but we decided to take a hike along the Indian Trail -- 3 miles in and 3 miles out. The trail extends over 13 miles -- too far for old folks, and the chihuahua that is tagging along. After the hike, we decided to drive the Highway of Legends. This is a scenic drive from La Veta, to Chucara, on to Monument Lake, over to Trinidad. Get back on the Interstate 25 North back to Walsenberg and to La Veta. The drive was about...

Where RV This Year?

Oct 10, 2014 - La Veta, CO

Greetings from La Veta, Colorado! This small town (population 800) is located along the Scenic Highway of Legends. La Veta, the vein, was originally a busy trading center. The historic main street is home to real estate entities, a thriving independent grocery, small galleries and a working Rio Grande Scenic Railway depot (circa 1887). The depot offers seasonal tours (currently the Pumpkin Patch Express fall colors tour) and I've included a photo of the train crossing Main Street and starting out on a journey. We visited the nearby town of...

2014 Yellowstone

Jul 16, 2012 - Moving on

Well, we didn't ride.  Infrequent but impressive cloud to ground lightening and 30 to 40 mph winds convinced us to walk a bit, staying fairly close to the Casita.  Few, thin rain showers though.  But, ah, the cool air!  Amazing what a little elevation and shade can do! So, we moved on to La Veta, Colorado, to stay at Lucy's Place RV Park. La Veta has always been a favorite of ours. Now it has been discovered. Much more activity and business going on. We even have a little shower of rain, what a treat! We walked around town, after the rain....

Summer Trip 2012

Oct 7, 2010 - a day without drama or trauma!

We crossed into Colorado around 8:30, heading for Camping World -- another place to spend money! Our campground last night was pretty disappointing. They are getting ready to close for the season on October 15, and it sure showed. The place where we are tonight, Elk Valley Fly Fishing Shop and RV Resort, is much nicer. The funny thing about this place is that Elk Valley really is a valley, but the elevation here is over 7000 feet! Denver is large and sprawling, it took us about 45 minutes to drive through the middle of it on the...

Sep 16, 2009 - Great Sand Dunes National Park, Colorado

After leaving Greeley, we drove through Denver to the south. We ended up driving right through the city because the by-pass would have cost over $30 in tolls for our truck and the 5th wheel. A unique setup in Denver is that there are no toll takers at the toll booths. For every vehicle that doesn't carry their version of an "Easy Pass" tag, cameras record the license plate and a bill for the toll is mailed to the vehicle owner in 30 days. Apparently, the elimination of 3 shifts of toll takers in each booth across the highway system is a...
