Camping

Comments Off

[Monday: 6 mile run Devil’s Backbone in Loveland; Tuesday: 5 mile hike; Wednesday: 8 mile run on Fall River Road; Thursday: 6 mile hike up Deer Mtn.]

Last Sunday we transported ourselves across Nebraska to front range Colorado.  Monday we went for a great run in the Devil’s Backbone county recreation area west of Loveland.  I’d driven past that many times but never stopped.  I am happy to say it is a very nice park with trails that extend from US-34 to the lower tip of Horsetooth Resv near Ft. Collins.

Tuesday we transported ourselves up to RMNP and set up our newly acquired tent at our appointed site in the Moraine Park Campground.

It must be 22 years since we last camped here, too long (I think it was with G&G Penenger,  1996,  right before we moved to E.P. ourselves).  I won’t do a day-by-day report but just say that eating instant oatmeal, hiking, playing with the camp fire, and just sitting quietly in the fold-up lawn chair while the sun came up in the morning…  it was wonderful.

There was a family of seven wild turkeys that roamed the camp ground.

(Now drive like crazy for two days to get back home)
