Colorado RV Trip August – October 2019

Our initial trips in our new RV were to Jacksonville, FL and Hilton Head, SC.   David completed Radiation on August 14 and had follow-up appointments with his doctors on August 20th.  On August 21st we departed Jacksonville in our new RV, with Mayo Clinic in our rear view mirror, headed for Colorado and New Mexico.  

First stop in Colorado, was Chatfield State Park in Littleton, CO, a suburb of Denver.  After 4 nights, we moved to our Carl and Julie’s driveway for a few days.  We celebrated being back in Denver with a Barbeque and friends.

Next stop was Green Ridge Campground near Grand Lake, CO.  This was a good test for the RV where we boondocked, no hookups, using water from our fresh water tank and generator to give our batteries a daily charge.

We covered northern, central and southwestern Colorado during this trip.  It was great timing for us to enjoy: the sound of a Elk bugle in Rocky Mountain National Park; cycling Breckinridge and Frisco’s great bicycle paths; soaking in the Hot Springs in Mt. Princeton; seeing the ruins at Mesa Verde National Park; camping with family; Colorado fall colors.

In Ridgeway, Colorado, our son and grandkids camped with us in their RV.  We had fun roasting marshmallows and making smores with the grandkids.  Ridgeway is where we enjoyed Colorado’s fall colors.  Our final stop in Colorado was Pagosa Springs.
