Monarch Pass was an easy pull. There is no snow on or near the highway. There is some road consruction and there were a couple of delays.

Lucy is still camped near Gunnison, Colorado. She rested today while we headed out on an exploration of the area. We visited the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park. The scenery was breathtaking. We spent several hours touring the Park.

We continued around the area seeking out more interesting scenery. We followed Colorado Highway 92 from Hotchkiss down to US 50. This route provided us with some spectacular scenery.

We got back to Lucy in time to catch a great sunset at the Campground.

Today's pictures include:

- Morrow Point Dam.
- Deer in the Campground at the National Park
- Several shots of Black Canyon.
- Downtown Crawford, Colorado
- 2 shots of scenery along Colorado 92.
- Sunset at the campground.

The boat tour of the canyon is worthwhile if you can get tickets without a reservation.

Have you gone to Taylor Park yet, there are Moose in the area. I've seen more on the southern part of the park. The cemetery outside of Tincup is unique, you'll have to go there to figure out why.

Thanks Jay. We had already gotten over to Grand Junction when I read your post.

Thanks for that tip. We will put it on our list.

Lucy broke camp this morning in Gunnison, Colorado, and we headed west on US 50. Lucy covered the hundred miles over to Grand Junction in pretty short order.

We got Lucy a very nice campsite on the west side of Grand Junction. We got there early, so we got set-up, and headed out to explore the nearby Colorado National Monument.

We spent the afternoon exploring the Colorado National Monument. It is about a twenty-five mile drive through the park. The red rock formations are spectacular.

We got back to Lucy right before darkness fell. We are settled in for the night.

Today's pictures include:

- Lucy's campsite in Gunnison.
- Coming into Grand Junction.
- Lucy's campsite in Grand Junction.
- The remainder of the pictures were taken in the Colorado National Monument.

Lucy is still camped in Grand Junction. We set of this morning to see the Grand Mesa. We got about 30 miles east of Grand Junction when Fred the Truck flashed a warning regarding his diesel exhaust fluid. His computer was saying that he was almost out of fluid when the tank was almost full. This type of warning, false or otherwise, can cause a shutdown of his engine. Accordingly, we turned around and headed back to Grand Junction.

We got to the local Chevrolet dealer a little after noon. The dealer took Fred right in. They diagnosed his problem as a computer miscommunication error. They were able to reprogram his system, and everything was working properly again. Of course, this took two hours to accomplish, so the trip to the Grand Mesa was kind of shot for today.

We took a short run to see the Little Bookcliffs Wild Horse Area. We didn't get to see any of the horses. We ran into a road wash-out about two miles into the wilderness.

We took a dusk run back out to the Colorado National Monument to see the sunset and the rise of the full moon. Tonight's moon was a blue moon as it was the second full moon in the same calendar month.

It was well after dark when we got back to Lucy.

Today's pictures include:

- Two pictures of rock formations on the road to Grand Mesa.
- Little Bookcliffs Wild Horse Area.
- SuEllyn with Fred on the Horse Area road.
- Road wash-out that forced us to turn around.
- Sunset at Colorado National monument.
- Full moon over the mountains.

Are you going to drive up to Gene's and get your fix of house remodeling while you are in GJ? Or have they already left for Pac NW?

We are getting ready for our trip to the northwest. We leave on Wed. Brian, when you went through the Monument, you were about a mile from our house and if we looked really hard (and we'd need X-ray vision to see you through the trees), we might have seen you. Are you at the campground just west of the I-70 junction with US 50 on the west side of Grand Jct.?

Hi Gene,

When we went through Crawford several days ago, we were touring Scenic Colorado 92, a didn't realize that we would be going through Crawford until we were almost there.

Lucy is camped at Junction West RV Park on 22 Road just north of I-70.

Lucy is still camped in Grand Junction, Colorado. After yesterday's problem with Fred, we again headed up to the Grand Mesa this morning. We made it this time, and spent most of the day seeking out the Grand Mesa Mooses. There is known to be a herd of around 400 Mooses in the National Forest on Grand Mesa.

We had a great time touring the Forest, but alas, we were not able to spot any Mooses. We came down off of the mesa before dark, and got back to Grand Junction in time to have a nice dinner at the Outback Steak House.

Today;s pictures include:

- Downtown Mesa, Clorado.
- Store sign in Mesa. Now we can buy guns and soft ice cream at one store. - Back road to the National Forest.
- Ducks along back road.
- Entering the National Forest.
- One of the many lakes in the Forest.
- Back country camping rig,
- View from the Mesa.
- High country lake.
- Moose sign on the Mesa.

Brian,

Heavy rain, flash floods and thunderstorms forecast today. We stayed at that CG several years ago and it was adequate for our purposes—a meeting in Grand Jct., but that was before we moved to the Grand Jct. area. We now live next to Colorado NM about half a mile above GJ.

Let me know by PM whether you are staying in this area for a few days and maybe we can find a way to meet.

Gene

Brian just checking: did you post your pictures any differently this time? I have always been able to see and enjoy them but they are in little GIF boxes this time and I can't see them.
