Wednesday August 2, 2017 Continental Divide Trail Colorado
Posted from Kremmling Colorado. Second post today.
Day 10 headed south on the Continental Divide Trail
Dennis and Cheryl met us at our camp this morning after their night at the motel.
We continued on down the Continental Divide Trail headed south on this road from our camp spot.
And through this area near a place called Steamboat in Colorado as we’d just entered that state not long ago.
We stayed on dirt roads as much as possible avoiding pavement as much as possible.
I continued to follow the others down the roads. Not too much dust today and the roads were mostly on the smooth side.
We went by these horses on a big ranch, just grazing in the pasture. The good life.
We stopped to check out this old Store at Columbine and had lunch in our rigs there before continuing on. The guys were talking with one of the guys biking the Divide Trail going south.
After lunch we continued on south on this road.
We went by this big lake that I never got the name of.
Tonight’s camp spot
Once we hit BLM land we headed for the first camp we came to and ended up here for the night. Marty’s snoozing there just after we settled into the spot.
And our first campfire
Dennis and Cheryl had a camp fire for the first time this trip so we took our chairs over to help them enjoy it.
Just before dark, we went back to the van and that was it for us today.
Love Columbine, I imagine this store has EVERYTHING! ;)
I was going to ask about Cheryl and Dennis’ accommodations on this trip when not in a hotel but then I saw this picture. They sleep up there? Wow, you must really think we are spoiled or at least not ‘camping’. :)
You need to start remembering the names of those places, so that maybe we can visit too…..
Enjoying your stories and pictures…
I’m really enjoying your trip so far. Keep those pictures coming.
