We left Kansas this morning passing many wheat fields and cattle farms. As we got into the eastern side of Colorado we began to notice a change in the terrain and saw antelope and hills. It was a while before we saw mountains in the distance, and then closer and closer to Denver they rose out of the horizon. We at a picnic lunch just east of Denver and then drove through the city and the mountains began to surround us. The valleys were so lovely, and the snow topped mountains were so pretty I almost cried. When we got to a point of over 11,000 feet it began to snow tiny flakes of white. Then we went into a long tunnel and as we came out on the other side the snow was gone. We drove until we got to Silverthorn but could not find a campground except for tenters. A little ways west on I-70 we found the most beautiful campground in
the White River National Forest on a lake near Frsico, Co. We could not believe the surround of mountains and the lovely view! We have no hookups and the wind is blowing cold. We ate supper and are almost ready for bed. It will be very cold tonight but we have plenty of cover for us all. I will pick out some pretty pictures to put on the right of the blog, then email a few more pictures to relatives and friends.
