Made it into Colorado today and most of the drive there was on a scenic route with only the last 40 miles on the highway. A nice change! Made a stop at the local Walmart Superstore for some supplies and then on to our destination, Pueblo Lake State Park. We have a site where we’re overlooking the lake. This is Colorado’s newest state park so all the facilities are nice. Now if they could only do something to stop the constant wind that would be great. By 4:00 the wind was buzzing at 20-25mph. I guess I shouldn’t complain as the forecast for tomorrow is gusts up to 35mph. The park has installed wind shelters over all the picnic tables so I’m guessing this wind situation isn’t a one time occurrence. We didn’t do any exploring today, so not much to say about the park, we’ll check it out tomorrow. Having Italian for dinner, pasta with meat sauce. Good thing we ate before the Red Wing game was over as my Red Wings lost game 7 in overtime.
We have great connectivity here -four bars on both AT&T and Verizon. That makes it so much easier for me to do my UC Davis online classes. I’m teaching while traveling. So if you need to phone us for any reason, now would be the time. The winds are preventing us from traveling to far on the bike so we are going into Pueblo tomorrow to the Riverwalk along the Arkansas River and check it out and the Steelworks Museum of Industry and Culture (right up Ralph’s alley). Tomorrow the winds will only be around 20 mph and we’ll head out on the bike.
Simple Simon found his spot on the dash with a lake view.
