Garden of the Gods Resort-Colorado Springs

We were underwhelmed with the "resort" but the real Garden of the Gods was awesome! Not to mention all the cool things to do and see around CS including
outside art festival in Manitou Springs and the USAF Academy.

Mesa Verde - Forgotten Campground

This campground was convenient with full hookups, but can't remember for the life of me the name. Sort of a rundown KOA. Mesa Verde was great with our AS buddies and only encountered one bandito.

Perhaps the campground was Ancient Cedars?? We stayed there in June 2018 when visiting Mesa Verde.

That must be the place! Thanks. Don't remember the ancient cedars though.

The view from Park Point Fire Tower was something. You could even see Shiprock in the distance!

DaveP, I love your fishing posts by the way and hope to hit a few of your spots some day!!

I think the full name is Mesa Verde RV Resort at Ancient Cedars (or something like that). When we were there, the skies were clear and Shiprock stood out vividly! I wish the wildfires would go away! The smoke is harshing our views here in Colorado!

Let me know when you come to fish. I'll tell you some of the secrets.

Quick on/off. It's pretty big, I've never seen it 50% full. As I recall there's a steakhouse right outside the gate.

Thanks folks! We are planning another Rockies trip this year but a bit concerned about all the fires. Have reservations for Longmire in Buffalo and Gros Ventre to meet some family flying into Jackson. Also, family moving to Castle Rock the end of this month we hope to visit. Sure hope things pan out.

Quechee, Vermont

Quechee, Vermont - KOA CG - 16-19 July 2021

There were so many AirStreams over just a few days we could've had a mini rally...LOL There's lots of things to see and do in the area. We just scratched the surface during our short rainy stay.

Quechee Covered Bridge right next door to the Simon Pearce Glass Factory. We wandered into see craftsman producing stemmed glasses and Christmas trees. It was amazing to see the liquid glass shaped and formed.

Thumbs up

Very nice indeed, Greg!




DaveP . . . that OTRA reference was only to the hat tip about about posting links, not to an actual road trip . . . although that possibility appears to be getting closer health-wise . . . happy to say. FWIW.

Peter
