John/Jeanne-

You may want to contact Ray Eklund on air forums. I have followed several threads of his about boondocking in Colorado and he seems to be very familiar with the rocky mountains.

Margaret and I met ya'll at Alumalina last fall. You were kind to lend us your Alaska info booklet. Maybe some day we will follow in your foot steps.

Good luck and have fun! And sorry about your pooch

Day 43.....We have had a great time in Cheyenne. They put on an excellent July 4th fireworks display, and we have enjoyed the neat downtown. Went to my first Menard's....holi-crapoli, they are huge. Could put Walmart, Lowes, and Home Depot out of business!
Toured the Medicine Bow National Forest. My first hike at just under 11,000 ft nearly killed me. Recovered quickly, but important to acclimate to thin air. Stopped for a lunch break in Sarasota, neat little town. Also stopped in Laramie and visited the Wyoming State Prison Historic Site...well worth the visit.
Next stop Fort Collins Colorado.

Campground note: we are F.E. Warren AFB. Nice campground,midi terrible, ATT weak. Close to everything. Would come back.

But don't it need a Hensley?

No need. The local law arrested the wrong person. They think they caught the real culprit and are transporting him now....

For future planning---- Which pass to take?

I know there is another thread on Colorado passes, read it, did not want to post there.

Looking for anyone who has towed their trailer from Ouray CO to Durango, or taken Rt 160 west through Wolf pass to Durango.

Please let me know your length of trailer. Mine is 30'.

Future Planning question #2

I should have ask this question with my post on which pass to take.

Has anyone taken the Cumbres Toltec Train to Chama NM? .... Recommend?

If you have also taken the Durango - Silverton Train, which would you recommend?

Day 50....skipped over posting about our stay in Ft Collins CO....we had a blast, great town and we will definitely go back for a much longer stay. Our objective was to visit several old Army friends, which we did. Enjoyed some great restaurants, rode our bikes on great bike paths.....super time. Temps were near 100. Barely any humidity.

We headed into Rocky Mountain NP and landed in a NFS campground just west of the park....Green Ridge, fresh water spigot, dump site, nice campsites, will be here seven days. Grand Lake is a neat town, had a great lunch at a Mexican restaurant. We are slowly getting acclimated to altitude. We are at 8,400'. We walk a lot and have been on two or three hikes of three to six miles. Hope to kayak today.

Going through RMNP our GPS said we hit 12,180'. We stopped at a couple pull offs. Winds were blowing. Estes Park is busy and crowded and all campgrounds full. We drove back into the park for the day. One of the trails we chose to hike was way more crowded than we are used to. Where our campground is, we can access trails into RMNP by foot and have enjoyed hiking from here. A pic of our campsite. More to follow.

Thanks for the travel log. Enjoying it very much.

I have traveled the million dollar highway going north from Durango to Ouray in the winter in a snowstorm. Yikes, no shoulder or guard rail heading south. I would be hard pressed to pull a trailer on that road. I would probably stay in first gear. Nice addition to your travel blog though.

Google the road. Very scary.

Dan

Dan, thanks much. That is the same assessment we are getting from many of the local folks. One thing I noticed on the road through RMNP and going up through Milner Pass, several drivers coming down were taking corner quite fast and crossing the yellow line. For the most part, drivers were abiding by posted speed limit....
