It is another beautiful sunny and warm morning. We headed west to the charming town of Fruita and the entrance to the “Colorado National Monument”. The Colorado National Monument rises over 2,000 feet above the Grand Valley of the Colorado River preserves a fantastic landscape of canyons and plateaus. The road through the park ...

Thanks to his handy TOPO software, Mr. Mashburn helped us put together a massive patchwork map of the Uncompahgre National Forest. With this giant scroll, we at least could out-navigate the ghosts.

Ed went out later on motorbike to get Pizza for dinner (they don't deliver to RV parks, wtf).
Whoops, flat tyre on motorbike, so he had to park it for us to pick up ...
