Happy Birthday to our son and grandson, Jerry and Jared. Yes, they were both born on the same day of May. They also share the same name. How cool is that? This update covers are trip to Meeker. You may remember our first update from Craig when we got stopped in Meeker by a huge herd of sheep being moved to new pastures. This is the same town we were in but we were in the RV pulling the car. It is a cool ranching town. We were here mainly to check out the campgrounds, we were told by a friend their campground was full of wildlife, they saw...

6/27/08 Today we took a drive further east into the Flat Top Wilderness area. The drive was along the White River and through more beautiful country with large groves of aspen and mountain sides covered with spruce. As we neared the end of the road to Trappers Lake, the mountain sides were covered with dead spruce as a result of a fire. This are reminded us of areas in Alaska where thousands of acres are burned almost annually. From the end of the road, we took a short hike to Trappers Lake which is the second largest natural lake in...
