Friday June 8, 2018-Mountain Views at Rivers Edge Resort

Well. we've been here for a week, but it's been an uneventful week. We rested all week because we were EXHAUSTED from making the drive from Elkhart Indiana. This will be our home for the next few months and I think we'll enjoy it.

What I did for these pictures was to stand in one place and take photos in a 360* circle, to try to show you the mountaintop views all the way around us.

There is another site behind us that is unoccupied at the moment. I feel pretty certain that it will be fill soon, as most of this park is spoken for this summer.

This is the site next door. As I said above, the park will soon be filled, and this site is now occupied by a motor home. I didn't want to be rude and take photos of my neighbors as soon as they arrived, so none yet.

Also note that there is a concrete patio on this site and there is not one on our site. That is one of the reasons we got a deal on our rent, no patio! 

These pictures don't do a very good job of showing the breathtaking views from this site. The mountains are beautiful and completely surround us here. 

Our tree!

To bring you up to date on this week, we went out to eat at a place called Cascada Bar & Grill and Cabins. Cascada, which means Little Waterfall in Spanish is a quirky little bar and grill that was built using parts and pieces of other buildings in Creede and art pieces to decorate the building. 

The food was pretty good, but we both had burgers and they were dry. Even with condiments, the meat tasted overcooked and rather tasteless. We may go back, but we probably won't get a burger.

Today, we met our friends Martha and Dana for lunch at the Cottonwood Cove Guest Ranch. This place is great, being a restaurant, gift shop, cabin sales and rentals and an RV Park. I'll be honest, we may come back here some day for a stay! We had a nice lunch and sat, chatting with our friends for an hour or so. The food was very good and we will definitely be back here. 

We are looking forward to a fun-filled summer in Creede. Please stay tuned!

So long.

Thursday May 31, 2018-Moving Day-Gunsmoke RV Park to Pueblo South KOA, Pueblo Colorado

We were up early and getting ready to leave here. This is a nice little park that was perfect for our overnight stay, but we stayed here three years ago with Dave & Nancy and Tom & Marti for a few days to explore the area and it worked well for us.

We actually pulled out about 8:30 and had another uneventful day of driving in western Kansas and eastern Colorado. We went through Lamar Colorado, where we stopped with Dave & Nancy after his truck broke down.It actually blew off a turbo hose that he found at the Ford dealership there. Dave bought the part and installed it and we were back on the road the next day. Lucky...

I've gotta tell you that I don't usually complain about highways but I am on this occasion. We traveled about 25 miles on I-25 and I can't think of another time that a major interstate highway was in such bad shape! The Colorado Department of Transportation should be ashamed! We found cabinets thrown open and the contents scattered on the floor and food thrown out of their cabinets. Be very careful traveling I-25 south bound at Pueblo.

We rolled into the KOA about 3 o'clock and were soon set up in our site. I had to ask for another site because they had put us into a heavily wooded site and I couldn't get out on the rooftop antenna. Gotta have TV!

Tomorrow is our last travel, thank goodness! I am tired and wanting to be somewhere that I can rest and relax. so don't expect to hear much from me for a few days. At least today will be a short 160 mile day but it's in the mountains, so that will slow us down. Can't wait to arrive!

So long.
