Nice laid back campground that can accomodate some large rigs. We parked facing the wetlands and enjoyed the nightly wildlife sightings. Beware that they are working on renovating the shower/bath faciilities with pay showers, not an issue for us but not sure how this will impact camping families as this is what this campground is geared for.

... we were going and giving bits and pieces of advice. We ended up essentially telling the entire bus what we were doing as we were the only ones talking. Another friendly old guy chipped in to tell us to go to a tea shop in Boulder. We’re English we must love tea!
On the way back we saw another amusing road sign. "It’s against the law to feed or approach the animals". Imagine going to prison for approaching an animal. ...

The wind was so strong that there was no soft spot in the lake at all to get that perfect mirror image of the mountains on the still glass of the surface. But I got lucky with that on so many other lakes so I just appreciate that I got to see this lake ...
... I was still glad to have seen one that close but I was on a mission for moose. We had coffee by a duck pond then headed to the park. There were wild turkeys at the ranger office. They didn't come when I called them like the ones in our backyard used to. :) We took Fall Creek Road to the summit. It's a gravel road and is one-way. It was a beautiful drive. This one made Rod more nervous than the Mt. Evans road but I handled it ...
... OMG, I am aged.
Still have about 8-10 hours of preparation, house stuff, biz stuff, dog stuff, workout to do before 6am tomorrow. I expect to be on France time today, by going to bed at 3am probably.
Excited about my most recent itinerary changes & additions--
