We spent almost two weeks in the South Fork, Colorado area checking everything out. Most of that time was spent on the banks of the Rio Grande in a National Forest campground. It rained almost every afternoon keeping the temps down in the 'nice' range, cool at night and in the 70's during the day. We did bring the rv into town to an rv park for two nights to have it washed and waxed by a mobile wash and wax guy. We had bugs on the front from South Dakota last fall. I'm happy to report that they are all gone.

We took a 19 mile dirt road trip to see the Headwaters of the Rio Grande.
The Rio Grande flows for 1248 miles, from Colorado to the Gulf of Mexico.
Still lots of wildflowers to be seen.
Columbine, the state flower of Colorado.
This area is in Mineral county. The scenic highway is called The Silver Thread. Silver being the most important mineral in the area, but with silver comes other things as well such as amethyst. So of course I bought an amethyst pendent. Sorry no picture.
We took another dirt road tour of some of the mining area above Creede, CO.
Rain drops on windshield, sorry.
We went to The Last Chance Mine where the owners are slowly restoring the old buildings.

It's all about beavers and their ponds.
We are heading south towards Taos, New Mexico and will post about that soon.
See you around the bend.
You see all types of rv's in campgrounds.
Green tent is on top of a small utility trailer.
We are seeing more and more of this type of tent camping.
