The drive from Pueblo to Salida Co is so awesome! We love how it goes right along the Arkansas River and the views just don't stop! We've stayed along the river before but our goal was the campground at Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park. If you've never been it is definitely something to experience! We were there 21 years ago with our middle son and then last year we went back and did the whole rim! So awesome.

|The Gondola at the top..not much snow this year!|
We got there about 1630 and found a site for us. It is still considered winter there, so no charge for camping! There's no water, but we don't care, and they have pit toilets, but we don't care either!
|Blue Mesa Lake, usually full to the brim..not this year|

We had a nice night inside the trailer. There was no tv or internet reception but we still enjoyed. I read my kindle and Ken watched a movie on his little dvd player. We had leftovers for dinner.
This morning we had coffee and some banana bread. I didn't try the mifi until Ken went in the shower but I cheated on him and read all our friends. I was able to comment but not able to post the blog. Better than nothing.
We left around 0900 and headed out. Gas in Montrose and then headed on down the road. We thought about heading to Moab and Arches National Park. After seeing the ATVS and trailers all heading that way, glad we decided not to this time. We've been before and we'll do it again.
From Green River UT to Salina, UT the scenery is spectacular! We both kept saying Wow..of course we've seen it many times, but the result is still the same! I always say I think God was in a really good mood when he created Utah and definitely parts of Colorado!
We didn't want to drive as far as we did, but we ended up in Filmore, UT at a Passport America park we've been to several times before. Wagons West RV Park..very nice with full hookups and pull throughs..$20.00 for the night. No complaints here.
There's just not a lot between Green River and Salina. We could have found something there..but a whole lot more. They have Butch Cassidy RV Park (not sure why)..but no hookups over $30.00 a night.
I've gotta say I was ready to post this and figured because we have internet here, and a mifi shouldn't be a problem but it is..so slow! We've noticed crossing America how there isn't phone service even in a lot of areas! How can that be?!
Hopefully Saturday morning I can get this posted before we go..
Pictures will have to wait until another day..as slow internet.
* Reading Dave's post from Our View From Here, saw that he and Cheryl were in the same RV park..looked out our window and saw they were only a few spaces down..:) We went over and had a short visit this morning! What a small world..I only wish we would have known yesterday as we could have had a Happy Hour with them..Safe travels you two!! Pictures later! :)))
