We had a pleasant trip along Interstate 40 with stops in Lebanon, TN, Forrest City, AR, Checotah, OK (2 nights), and Amarillo,TX . It was sunny and hot, in the mid 90’s, so hot in fact that we didn’t even make use of the nice outdoor pool in Oklahoma.
We left Amarillo yesterday and had a beautiful ride on Routes 325, 87, and Interstate 25 up through Texas, New Mexico and into Colorado. Our first picture is where we stopped for lunch on the NM-Colorado border. The landscape was dramatic as we climbed into the high desert with mountains in the distance. We arrived at Mountain View RV Resort in Canon City, CO yesterday, to be greeted by a cold front and clouds. I waited for a colorful sunset picture and then for a sunrise picture, but the sun did not cooperate. We took pictures anyway.
Today we went to Royal Gorge Bridge, one of the highest suspension bridges in the world. In June, a fire destroyed part of the bridge, so it is now closed for repair. It was probably a blessing in disguise for me
as I would have been scared witless to walk over it. Tomorrow we leave for Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park.
