We are moving to Ft Collins, Co. Until the new house is ready we are camping. This week is at the Golden Eagle CG near Ft. Carson. Next week we will be near Westcliffe and there should be some pictures. No electric there so pictures will be after the trip which includes a music festival.
It has been hot some days and sorta chilly others,
This is our last day here, since it is still windy we took a drive to highway 279. It was a great drive, we saw rock climbers on what is called the wall. We also saw some petroglyphs and dinosaur tracks. After our ride we went into Moab again. I parked and Sandy and Jim walked on the Midland Trail which follows a creek. Next time they visit they will take their bikes. They weren't sure if the path was worth riding on, but it was really nice, went farther then they thought. They did not take all of the trail available. We headed back to the campground and started getting ready to leave tomorrow. For now there are a few sites at the campground available.
The rest of the trip will be driving home. So, that is all for now.
Pretty cloudy and sprinkling off an on. I drove to Moab and the. sandy and Jim took showers at the Moab Aquatic center. Moab is a busy place today, plus, the car show is this weekend. A big event for this small town. Some groceries were picked up and Sandy and Jim went to church.
Back at the campsite it was dark very early do to the clouds and rainy weather. It rained really hard late that night.
First thing to mention, red rocks means red soft sand. When this red soft sand gets wet you have red dirt. A good example from Sandy. Sometimes the sand looks brown, but it is pretty much pinkish. This picture is after the numerous creek crossings on today's hike called Negro Bill's Hike
I drove Sandy and Jim to the parking hub so they could ride along the Colorado River. It was very and I mean very cold last night. After the bike ride we went to the downtown area of Moab. Pretty small town but a fair amount of hotels. On the way back we stopped at the spring water on highway 128. Sandy and Jim took solar showers, I heard them saying AHHH!!
It was extremely windy last night. Jim had to put my top down and latch it. Sandy caught a glimpse of a Heron float on a log on the CO River. It was a quick float as the river is moving fast.
After breakfast off the Arches National Park. We saw so much in a little time. The rock formations are incredible. Sandy and Jim took a couple of hikes. The pictures don't really show what it looks like. This place is definitely a geography miracle. Here are some pictures.
Drove from Grand Junction to the campgrounds just north of Moab. We could see the CO National Monument on the way. It was a bit touch finding a place to camp on 182 but we had success. The site is about 10 steps away from thr CO River with just a small area open to see the river. We are at Hal Canyon site 8. Lots of tall cliffs made of red rock. No bears here buy we wondered about dinosaurs. We got to the site about 12 all day until about 7 people looking for camping sites. It was pretty overcast today and windy at times. Jim started a campfire and then the wind really picked up. Oh, well. Just about 8 PM we saw some great sunset pictures on the canyon walls.
