Jul 12, 2010 - Laundry & Fossils

Day 32 Diamond RV Park, Woodland Park, CO I finally got that laundry out of the way. Wow, I’ll never let it go that long again. And doing it on Monday is not a good idea….there were quite a few people doing it today too. When we finished the laundry (Joe helped me get it together and back home) Joe swept & vacuumed the RV while I was doing the laundry :-] We finally were able to get our haircuts done today in town….town is only a couple of miles from the RV Park. Joe was getting very shaggy….well, I guess I was too :-/ We decided after we...

After Danielle checked us in, Jack led us to Site 86 at the far end of the camp. This will be our home until August...

Jul 7, 2007 - Pike's Peak

I thought I had witnessed some of the most beautiful sights this world had to offer....until I arrived in the Rockies. Al and I crossed Missouri and Kansas rather quickly, then spent a night in Pueblo, Co. As we arrived in Colorado Springs and started climbing to 8500 feet, we were both overwhelmed with the beauty of the Pikes Peak National Forest. This is the mountain top that provided the inspiration for "America the Beautiful". At 14,000 feet, you can see the "amber waves of grain" in Kansas and the "purple mountains majesty" everywhere...
