Back to Lake Glendo

Our last night before arriving at home with the new Wildcat is in one of our favorite camping locations in Wyoming, Lake Glendo.  Located just east of I-25 at mile marker 111, Glendo State Park offers beautiful lake vistas from the Two Moon campground on the southern shore.  We’ve camped at many of the sites in Two Moon, but none as many times as this beautiful cliff-side site on the small loop.  The site is short, with a slight downhill grade and a picnic table and fire ring.  We’ve been here with the boat, the truck camper and now the new 5th wheel.  It’s tight in the new trailer, but after a bit of expert backing and maneuvering, we manged to get parked, and fairly level without the need to unhitch.  This will be a short overnight, we’ll be in Ft. Collins for lunch tomorrow and home by early afternoon.

As is typical, this time of year brings very low water levels on the lake.  Many of the boat ramps are already closed for the season including the ramp at Hall’s Marina.  With about 200 sites in Two Moons, and only a handful of campers on this Friday night, we feel like we have the place nearly to ourselves.  With good cellular coverage we’re able to catch up on email and work for a couple of hours before relaxing on the cliff.  Sunset is spectacular, partially because of the smoke from the many forest fires burning across northern Wyoming and southern Montana.

After a quick stop at the free RV dump at the park headquarters we’re headed south by 10AM for the final leg of the trip. This has been an amazing journey.  Just 9 days ago we were in Spokane, WA taking delivery of the new Forest River Wildcat 241RLX.  The new “fiver” has handled well, is very comfortable and has many things for us to learn and explore.  The next camping trip is at Jefferson Lake, west of Denver in 2 weeks – more from there!
