Sep 14, 2018 - Redstone cg

We traveled from Yampa SP through the middle of Colorado to Glenwood springs where we ate lunch at Jilbertitos. This is where we always stop and get great Mexican food. Bill had a carnita torta which was huge and I had the asada taco which was excellent! Headed on to the Redstone cg and walked about 2 miles along the Crystal River. Nice little CG and we got the last site since it's Friday.

Jul 16, 2013 - Avalanche Creek

We heard there was a great hike from the campground to the Maroon Bells Wilderness Area so we put Yukon in the camper and took off. The trail started off great (level) along the creek but then started climbing and climbing! We made it to the bridge and then climbed up to some rocks where we ate lunch and had a view of the Bells and the river about 1000 ft below us. We headed back down and let Yukon go drink from the creek. Another night at our freebie campground. Best cold water from a pump that we've had.

We left Lake Irwin and went back to CB to resupply. We drove 30 miles over Kebbler Pass through giant aspen groves to track the paved highway again.

We turned off at Marble to camp on the Crystal River but decided the road was way too rough and dangerous so on to Avalanche. After about a 3 mile road up through a canyon we found the campground. All 6 sites right along the creek so it was time to quit for the day-about 60 miles of traveling!

About an hours' drive south of Glenwood Springs, and along the Crystal River, sits a small town named Redstone. Quaint, peaceful like, artsy and containing a landmark named the Redstone Inn. This small community of 83 people are friendly and eager to be hospitable and gracious. Bob and I enjoyed a drink at the well maintained Redstone Inn that boasts of a wedding for each weekend of the...
