After 1 Week At Rocky Mt. National Park We Are On the Move Again!

Ken and I left Riverview CG at 9:30 and were on our way to Cherry Creek State Park in Aurora, CO about a 1 1/2 hour drive.  We loved driving around Denver and viewing the skyline and passing by Mile High Stadium, home to one of my all time favorite football players, Peyton Manning.

We arrived at the park at 11 and were told we would have to come back at noon to try to get a site.  We hadn't made reservations and it was on a first come first serve basis.  So we returned at noon and were about number 8 on the list.  We felt blessed because we got the last full hook-up site for the night.  The level sites are cement as well as the area for the fire ring and picnic table and because we had a large pull-through we didn't have to disconnect the CRV.

A state park in Aurora, Colorado!

The sites were level, very large, and beautiful!

We stayed here for 1 night to visit John Balmer and his wife, Suzanne.  John was a fellow classmate from high school, and since Ken and I graduated the same year from the same school, both of us knew him.  They arrived at the SP at 2:30 and we spent about 2 hours in Waldo just visiting and "catching up" on life.  Last year they spent 8 months on the road in a Winnebago Motorhome, so we had lots to talk about.

Then they drove us to their condo in Aurora where we had more time to visit and then treated us to a delicious home cooked meal.  By 8:00 the 4 of us rode back to the SP and said our good-byes.  Ken and I really appreciated their hospitality and that they took so many hours of their day to spend with us.  We look forward to seeing each other again!

John, Suzanne and Dash!

Suzanne played the harmonica and
Dash sang along.  It was amazing!

We had such a good time visiting with them and really
appreciated the great meal they provided for us!
