What a Life!

What other lifestyle could we choose and see a mule deer doe, a wild turkey and a chipmunk before 7:15 am, while looking at a view like this

while staying is a site like this

overlooking this trail?

Tuesday we left Lathrop State Park and drove to Cheyenne Mountain State Park in Colorado Springs. This is the newest park in the Colorado park system and it is certainly first class. The camp sites are large and have full hookups. They offer privacy, as well as great night-time views of the Colorado Springs lights. The trails are well planned and well maintained. We had a great run downhill Wednesday mornign (we walked back up to our campsite).

The entrance is across the road from Fort Carson Army Base and we heard reveille waking up the soldiers this morning. But the park is quite and beautiful. We will definitely return.

After a short visit with family and some doctor, dentist and truck appointments, we are headed for Montana, where we will be workkamping till October.


  1. Glad to see you made it there safely and like the spot so well. We are really suffering from the heat and trying to get the air conditioner fixed. Imagine it is a bit cooler there. Travel safely and we will be thinking of you. Stay in touch! Nan and Norm

  2. I am forever trying to catch up with your adventures. I envy your ability to do some hiking. I have painful knees either the results of childhood polio or arthritis. In either case, not much I can do about it. My limit is about a mile of flat ground.

    The mountains are lovely. I remember a trip I made though British Columbia years ago and every view was just another scene to try to capture on film.
