Summer, 2018: I’ve decided there are just no more excuses for my not exploring Colorado properly and I’m getting serious about my planning now. I started fulltime RVing in 2001 and my time here has only been way too brief tips through on my way to somewhere else. But this year, the Rockies are definitely calling me!
The only time I have ever slept here was in June 2015 when I was on my way to Yellowstone.
I stayed a few nights at Trinidad Lake State Park, which was a spectacular Colorado state park. But as I found out, it’s not always easy to get into a state park here for more than a couple of nights and only if you’re super lucky and there’s not a weekend anywhere around.
But I took full advantage of my time there and took off on the Levsa Canyon Trail. Here’s a view of the Culebra Range of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains.
The mountain peaks that can be viewed from here are incredibly beautiful and I never got tired of seeing them from different vantage points.
I was even treated with a vibrant rainbow surprise right from my windshield! My June 2015 blog post about that.
I’ll be posting more details about my plans soon, but basics are on Latest News.
As always, some of my favorite things involve the state and national parks and nearby attractions. For some reason, I have more anxiety built up over finding a place to stay here for a week (or month) at a time than I ever have about any other state. I keep hearing that if I don’t have reservations by now, forget staying anywhere decent this summer.
But hearing that what I want to do might not be easy has never stopped me before, so I’ll be taking off from Tucson at the end of April. Here’s my 2018 Summer in Colorado Plan. I’d appreciate your chiming in if I’ve missed anything good.
