Back in Alamosa…


What a wonderful time we had in the mountains near Creede, CO this past week.  Just starting to turn green there, and early in the season, so uncrowded and peaceful!  That’s Nancy & Dave’s rig in the foreground of the first photo at Silver Thread National Forest Campground, and us tucked back in the trees.  Notice the photo of our campsite… Nell found the last patch of snow!  She claimed this spot, and each day it melted until no longer a cool spot remained for her… guess she is still a Colorado, cold-weather dog.

One day we toured Creede and took in the sights of the historical mining town.  We ooohhhed and aaahhhed at the rock formations, old mining structures. Left: Tom, Dave, Nancy. Center: Nancy & Dave

Tom SO enjoyed the good fishing at Rito Hondo and Continental reservoirs… caught his limit of trout each day.

As some of you know, one of my favorite Colorado spots is the “headwaters” of the Rio Grande.  Had to show the view area to Nancy and Dave, and took photos of each of us there.

Now, we will take this week here in Alamosa to get some projects done, pick wild asparagus, visit with family and friends.  Plan to do a bit of site-seeing, also… out to the Great Sand Dunes, for one thing.

Next week, we head to Albuquerque so Tom can be fitted for a new prosthesis… his is beginning to be worn out, and some lost pounds make for a not-so-right fit anymore.   The process of molds, forms, fittings and all takes about a week, and we will do our “big city” shopping and stocking up while there before heading into the mountains near Durango at Vallecito Reservoir.

Best wishes to all… keep in touch!  Dianne & Tom

  3. Are you guys going to be in Albuquerque over Memorial Day week-end? That's when we will be there. Your blog is really looking great. Those trout look like some great eating.

  4. We enjoy your blog. It was good to see the photo of Dave and Nancy. I think I last saw them in Elkhart. We plan to spend time in Colorado after the Escapade. We leave Arizona Tuesday.

    1. Jan - would be great to see you and Bill again. We should be in the Vallecito Reservoir area, near Durango, for most of July... Nancy & Dave, too. So, let us know if you might make it down that direction. Looks like lots of us headed that way... some good campfire times, to be sure! Dianne

  5. It is a bit late since you have been on the road a bit, but welcome to fulltime motor homing. I do like the larger font.
