Did some really nice camping along the Taylor River. I then took a dirt road over Kebler pass no problem with my Sovereign.
Sail on silver girl. Sail on by. Your time has come to shine.

Can't let this one go without a plug for my hometown: Salida, CO. Don't be misled by what you find on hwy 285 or 50 -- that's just the commercial strip of which we're rightly ashamed. Head toward downton on the Arkansas River for the real part. Good bars (I recommend the Victoria), lots of art, and amusing, colorful locals. Just about any place in Chaffee County elicits comments like "Oh my Gawd, why doesn't everyone live here"? I know next to nothing about RV sites there, backcountry sort that I am, except that there are a lot of 'em -- maybe enough that they're not all full on the 4th. Four miles north of Maysville (honk when you pass the old Yellow House) on CR 240 is Angel of Shavano campground. No hookups, far as I know. If you have an ATV or stout 4-wheel-drive, you can go, sans trailer, to the top of that road annd visit my old mining cabin above Billings Lake at 12,000'.

From Salida, you could go north toward Leadville for mining lore or south for ashrams in Crestone. A half-day hike from any of those places will get you to wilderness areas, and another half-day puts you on top of 14,000' peaks.

July is "monsoon" season in all of the Colorado High Country, so be prepared for rain or snow each afternoon, with accompanying shorts-soiling lightning. Mid-September is the absolute best time to visit. Check Colorado Central magazine (Colorado Central Monthly Magazine Home Page) for more information.

It's not the heat, it's the stupidity.

We stay at the Last Resort RV Park just south of Pagosa Springs on 84. It is a small park on the Rio Blanco River. The owners are wonderful people and are our best friends in Colorado. Many things to do and see in that area. The River is nice for swimming, very clean. I have seen a lot of nice size fish come out of that river Browns and Rainbows. Usually on the 4th weekend there is a very good themed pot luck. Pagosa has a great 4th of july parade.
Check out their website The Last Resort RV Park & Campground

pm me if you need more info.

There are two ways to die in the desert.
One is by thirst and the other is drowning.
