Rocky Mountain High in the Rocky Mountain National Park

I now understand what John Denver meant by his song: I've now been Rocky Mountain High.

If I could only […]Read More

Cycling with an RV

  Meet Cindy. My cycling fiend- I mean friend. She is all about pro cycling. We watch the Tour de France every year, but in between, she watches all the other big races and knows every statistic and name out there.

The Black Canyon of the Gunnison

I bet many reading this have not heard of the Black Canyon of the Gunnison. It's probably not on many RVer's bucket list. It should be. Invariably, it is compared to its more famous Big Brother, the Grand Canyon. But while the Grand Canyon is deeper (6,000 feet at its greatest depth) and longer (277 […]Read More

Getting high near Telluride, CO

Man we got high near Telluride! At 9,500 feet in elevation, the Matterhorn Campground just south of Telluride, CO was the highest place we've overnighted yet on this Great Roadtreking Family Vacation of 2013. Son-in-law, Dan, noticeably felt the effects of the altitude and all of us noticed a bit of dizzyness on exertion, especially […]Read More
