      After visiting Brother Nick we camped at the Saddlehorn campground on the Colorado national monument. We had site #42 which was very nice. Good view of fruita area at night. Only drawback was it was close to the bathrooms. (Flush toilets) another good site would be #8 on the A loop but I guess that one you can't reserve. Did early morning bike …

      ... when we saw the sign for clearance through tunnels between us and the campground at two feet shorter than our RV. We later learned that we could have fit by straddling the middle but we have been very pleased to find a great little state park just outside the national park.

      ... twice, and came to rest as noted above. We could not see anyone standing around that we would identify as the driver or passengers. We could only assume the driver and any passengers had already been taken to the town of Vail for treatment.

      That patch of ice was the only one we saw on the way up Vail Pass. On the way down there were two or three others, but no other accidents.
