Well, we've really been moving these last several days!! From the Texas Panhandle to Clayton, New Mexico to Colorado Springs, Colorado to Rawlins, Wyoming to Hill AFB, Ogden, Utah to Mountain Home, Idaho. Phew!! This will be a 2 night stop as was Colorado Springs. The weather has gone from sunny to awful to terrible and now back to sunny! In some areas horrible winds and torrents of rain. We keep moving along as long as we see the semis on the road. If they pull over, we pull over.
The scenery, despite the weather, is always spectacular!! Head on to Oregon & Washington on Monday.

Wow!! What a beautiful spot!! This is heaven!! We are at Cheyenne Mountain State Park, nestled at the base of Cheyenne Mountain. Great gravel and concrete pads and patios, unbelieveable views! We're here for two nights and then onward over the Rockies. Oh, did I mention we have incredible views of the Rockies...

Need to catch up on the blog; really behind on our travel tales. Now we're rolling along on our way to Birch Bay, Washington, and meeting up with kids and grandkids there for a mini-vacation. Headed out of Kerrville, TX, on Saturday. Really like the RV park there... on the Guadalupe River, nice pads, just very comfortable and VERY reasonable rates!! And, looking forward to returning there in the Fall and house hunting in Kerrville.

Tonight we're in Clayton, NM, just over the Texas border from Abilene. It was a beautiful drive here. Drove the Panhandle area through Palo Duro which is the 2nd largest canyon in the US, just after Grand Canyon. Beautiful!! Lots of cattle, horses and huge farms!! Tomorrow onto Colorado Springs and a two night stay to catch our breath and relax a little. And a much needed stop at the commissary at Fort Carson... refrigerator is looking kind of empty.
