Good Morning from Silt, CO!

9 09 2016

wp_20160909_001After a fairly early departure from Vernal, we’ve arrived at this new KOA along the Colorado River by about 1PM.  We’ll have park WiFi and good cellular access here allowing us to get caught up on at least the most critical work.  We last visited this KOA about 2 years ago – with brand new trees, grass and gravel pads, and after an unusual amount of rain the entire park was left a muddy mess.  Deep tire ruts were everywhere, it must have taken the grounds crew some time to fix broken sprinkler heads and fill in the ruts.  Today you’d never know of these growing pains – the trees are healthy, the grass is lush and green, and the back-in sites along the river offer some of the best views of any RV Park.  KOA’s are always a bit pricey, these premium sites are nearly $50 with applicable taxes.  But, the amenities are many, a beautiful pool and spa area, a sparkling clean laundry room, equally clean and tidy showers and a great kids playground.  Sites are long and level and provide a fire pit and picnic table.  And the park provided WiFi isn’t bad, especially in non-peak times.

This is our last stop of the 2016 Olympic Peninsula trip.  We’ve traveled nearly 4000 miles, parked at 18 different RV sites and spent 29 nights on the road.  In all, a great trip, and one with many places we want to return to.  Among those would be the Oregon Coast, Sequim and the Port Angeles/Port Townsend areas and Jordanelle SP near Park City, UT.  We’d also like to spend more time along the Columbia River from Ft. Stevens SP/Astoria eastward.
