Laura and I left Wolford Campground Wednesday had lunch in Silverthorne then went out different routes (she is headed down to New Mexico and I'm headed to visit Leslie and April for a week or so).
Checked into James Robb State Park in Fruita, Colorado today (Friday) for 4 nights. Nice paved roads in the campground with level concrete pads to park on, fire pit and covered picnic table with gravel area. If you don't camp you have no idea how wonderful this is. Am able to get 30 tv stations with my antenna -- which is GREAT as rain is expected every afternoon (and that is good as it keeps the temps down).
Supposedly, the Dinosaur Museum is within walking distance..... we'll see tomorrow. Great mountain views -- only thing I don't like is.... showers are NOT free. It's $1 for 4 minutes then 25 cent for each minute thereafter -- and this is on top of a $7 daily vehicle fee that is in addition to $24 daily camping rate (and a $10 reservation fee). This is probably the most expensive State Park I've stayed in. Just glad I can shower in Yoda III.
