Seems like the first time I went thru, some didn't show up, but then later they all did. Wayne

This is great! I planning on heading this way in 2 weeks. Your pictures and comments turned my thoughts of not coming and choosing a different place to head because of the fires. Hows the CG your at? We have reservation at it too.

Definitely keep posting pictures. You put up some wonderful ones. My wife and I love visiting Colorado. Someday we're going to get back out there.

Elk Meadow is the best of the campgrounds in this area. We're in the "B" section which has narrow sites. Actually I think we have one of the worst sites in the park. Most of the sites will require a bit of leveling from side to side and the roads and sites are a gravely dirt mix. This park does have very good amenities, cable, free wi-fi, swimming pool, mini-golf, etc.

Most of the other campgrounds are in the same general vicinity so take a ride through the others if you have time. You'll be surprised how bad some of the other parks are.

If you look in the western section of the Travel Chat forum I posted about this RV park. Look for the post titled, "I made the right choice."

We didnít do much yesterday. In the morning we took the Estes Park Aerial Tramway up to top of a mountain for views of Estes Park. It was a hazy day so I didnít get great photos. There are trails and picnic areas at the top and they encourage you to feed the critters that live up there by selling peanuts at 50 cents a scoop. The chipmunks were more than willing to take them from your hand.





In the afternoon we took another ride on the Trail Ridge Road. Just before you get to the Alpine Visitors Center there is a snowfield that is accessible for those who want to have a snowball fight in the summer. The field is at an altitude of 12,000 feet so donít think youíre going to do a lot of running and jumping without getting extremely winded. Also at the turnout for the Tundra trail, watch for Marmots playing in the rocks.





On Friday nights the RV park offers a chili dinner. For $4 you get a bowl of chili and a baked potato. It was pretty good but Iím glad we have Gas-X in our trailer. Maybe I should say my wife was glad we had Gas-X on hand.

We didnít do much our last day at Elk Meadow in Estes Park. We spent the morning cleaning the Silverback and putting a few things away for our departure tomorrow. In the afternoon we went into town to the local winery and had a glass of wine while sitting beside the creek that runs through Estes Park.



That evening we went to the dinner and show that the campground offers on Saturday nights. The food was OK but the entertainer, David Peel, was excellent.

Weíre back home in Jefferson County Missouri and spent four uneventful days on the road getting back. It seems that every time we drive through Kansas the wind is always blowing hard and we never have a tailwind.

The only thing left to do from our trip is wait for the bill from Colorado for using the E-470 toll road from I-25 to I-70 in order to bypass Denver. I believe our bill will be $28.35 for 4 axles. YIKES!
