The egg has been rolling for a week, now. We departed home last Sunday around noon with Memphis the destination for the night. Friends had a new grandson, and Wanda wasn’t going anywhere without getting in a little baby time.
From Memphis we traveled a familiar route westward. Monday night on Beaver lake, Arkansas. Tuesday was Fall River cg in Kansas, Lots of water everywhere this year.
Nice old steel truss bridge leading to the campground.
Spent the next night in Dodge City, KS. Been there, done that.
Thursday found us at another dam. On the Arkansas river in Colorado.
Friday and Saturday nights were spent along Hwy 50, west of Pueblo, CO. On Saturday we attempted two scenic backroad routes to Cripple Creek, CO. Had to turn around on both due to flood damage. Finally took the highway there. Once an old mining town, it has been restored, and is apparently the gambling mecca of Colorado. Most all the old historic buildings were now casinos.
On the way back to the campground we managed to take a small scenic road called Skyline Drive. Not for the faint of heart.
Tonight, Sunday, finds us at our destination for the next few days. Buena Vista, Colorado. Stay tuned….jc
