We stayed in an RV park in Durango, but had little desire to explore this lovely town, choking on smoke. Luckily, we had secured a nice spot for the night in a park which was loaded with road bicyclists that were running a 50 mile race through the mountain pass. YIKES!
and no smoke.....Yay!
We took off early and are headed to Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park, where Michael wants to explore and we are hoping for a 2 day stay. Traveling over a 10,000 ft pass in the Rockies is an awe inspiring vista. As I listened to veterans stories on NPR and tried to keep from driving off a cliff, I felt I could not be in a better place on Memorial Day. America, the beautiful, before my very eyes.
