"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime"-MARK TWAIN

After leaving sewer hookups a week ago Thursday, and electric on Monday, it was time to find some place to dump the tanks and charge the battery.  Most places charge from 10 to 15 dollars just to dump and fill the water tank, so we decided to get a spot in a RV park for a couple of nights.  It was also time to replenish the provisions and do laundry.  A call to Centennial RV park between Montrose and Ridgeway got us the last spot available.  Talk about a mouse amongst elephants.  Most everything else in here is forty feet long, with a Jeep and ATV parked front and rear.

We spent Saturday doing laundry, visiting City Market for groceries, and doing a little cruising of some back roads. 

As we went through Gunnison yesterday, it started a light rain which followed us all the way to Montrose.  It was cloudy and drippy most of the day, beginning to clear just before sundown.  Being in the middle of the Uncompahgre River valley, the opportunity for some sunset shots presented itself.

Looking West.
