Setting up camp
Traveling with Jim and Elaine - Our 2008 Colorado Adventure

Back in the Park to get some utilities on the lot

After Elaine headed for Texas to visit with her grandkids, Jim heads back out to Colorado in mid June.
 

Arriving on the lot with the trailer in late June.

 

The mountains still have quite a bit of snow on them.

 

The steam train has added two dome cars this year.  They are

Some of the many wildflowers that are in bloom this spring.

 

I hiked with the local hiking group on one of their weekly hikes.

 

The beautiful mountain columbine is the Colorado state flower.
