Back in Colorado

22 04 2014

We’ve arrived back in Colorado!  After 44 nights and over 4000 miles, we’re parked in site #79 at Lathrop State Park which offers a beautiful view of the Spanish Peaks to the south.  This site has one of the shared water hydrants within a few feet, making filling or even a temporary hose hookup easy. When we arrived yesterday, the Peaks were shrouded in storm clouds that moved out onto the plains as the sun went down.

This morning, the peaks are brilliant with their fresh covering of snow reminding us that this is spring-time in Colorado when the weather can easily go from 80’s one day to a snow storm the next.  However, unlike last year when we hit a snow and ice storm in eastern Colorado, this week’s forecast is for pleasant weather for at least the next 4 or 5 days.  We’ll delay re-winterizing the camper until after we’re home.  Our next trip to the Moab, UT areas when we’ll visit Canyonlands National Park is only 10 day away.  More from western Utah…
