Jun 22, 2009 - Day 12 - Wichita Falls to Trinidad, CO

Today: 487 miles Total: 2978 miles Dale: Wow...what a day! We got started early again to beat the heat. The forecast for Wichita Falls was 101 degrees. We headed out at 5:30 in the dark. The roads were really quiet and there was a definite lack of trucks on the road today. I don't know why there were less trucks today...but it sure makes the ride a lot more peaceful when you're on a motorcycle. I think we both had mixed feelings as we rolled down the highway. We had just spent 2 great days with Chris...but knowing that we wouldn't see him...

Aug 27, 2008 - TO TRINIDAD, CO

August 27, 2008 – Wednesday: It’s hard to resist coming out and watching the train go through the campground. So even though I’ve taken pictures before, I still went out this morning. About 15 minutes after the train comes through, the little patrol car comes along. It’s just this little one person car that speeds along the track. He’s looking for any fires sparks from the train might have ignited. Most of the time they don’t find anything. Today was a travel day from Durango to Trinidad, CO via US 160. Generally travel days aren’t too...

Cheyenne Days

Oct 9, 2007 - Amarillo, Texas To Trinidad,Colorado

October 9, 2007: 232 miles, From Amarillo, Texas to Trinidad State Park, Colorado. Ate our ham and pancakes, finished the morning chores, and drove .8 mile to the infamous Cadillac Ranch. Surprised to see every inch of each car is covered with graffiti. Looks like it's encouraged, even. Still an impressive sight. Saw one of my favorite signs Amarillo, Donut Stop, bought a few Peach Fritters. Saw an ATM and finally managed to get some cash. We have been having a problem with ATMs, but finally got it straightened out by phone. Filled the...

Oct 8, 2007 - Movin' On Again to Trinidad, CO

Monday, October 8, two huge security lights and porch lights were on all night next door to us. We have the neighbors from hell with two barking dogs. The low was 39 last night but a light freeze happened in nearby communities. We turned on the TV early this morning to make sure Raton Pass was clear for today's journey south to Santa Fe. We happened upon a news report about the Albuquerque Balloon Festival this week! That made us realize that Santa Fe is only 60 miles north of Albuquerque so we may have a hard time getting a camp site. Just...

Sep 6, 2007 - Trinidad, CO - map point only

Thursday, September 6 We drove about two hundred miles north from Santa Fe, NM to Trinidad, CO, which is just eleven miles inside the border. The campground is acceptable, but our site put us behind a tree, so we cannot get an Internet satellite connection. We could possibly move forward about ten feet and then maybe get a connection, but we were too tired to bother with it. Tomorrow will be another long drive north of two hundred and fifty miles to Loveland, CO. After tomorrow we will have driven for four days in a row. We usually don't...

Jun 14, 2006 - Now in Colorado Springs

WoW! Guess I better get caught up on our travels. We left Amarillo on June 10th had a great visit with Ruth. Left the next morning and spent the night in Trinidad, CO. Interesting town, they were having 4th Annual Santa Fe street festival. We ate at a great Italian restaurant called: Rino's, great food and we were serenaded by the owners and a waiter in the style of Dean Martin/Frank Sinatra we were very impressed. We recommend the restaurant highly. One of our highlights was Martin invited me to get on top of our cabin to watch the sunset....
