A Secret....................Updated

There is a secret place here in the USA! South West Colorado...............Curecanti National Recreational Area..................Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park.............West Elk Loop which is a gorgeous Scenic and Historic Byway.



Well it was a secret to us and I can tell you what a beautiful, breath taking area! The night sky is amazing, the sunsets are second to none, not to mention the many
wildflowers that pop up in the spring. Many nites it feels like you can reach out and touch the stars. And the morning sunrises are just as lovely but I don't always see that many of them. Made a lot of memories with some photos you have seen here and on my photo page.

Here is a very special photo of the Gunnison Grouse which is a bird that should be on the endangered species list

We never realized how great workamping could be. But then workamping has a lot to do with the owners/managers of the RV park you work. And boy after having a pretty crappy experience in West Yellowstone...........we found a home here in South West Colorado.......well a home for a few months..........I have mentioned in the past how great the owners of this RV park are.............caring folks and extremely hard workers And if ya didn't know it snows here on the western slope at approximately 7800 feet altitude..................the Doodle's don't do SNOW!!!

While workamping we always plan on going someplace special every week. A tourist attraction, a hike, a farmer's market, a sightseeing cruise. Seeing our country and "making memories" are the reasons we're workampers. If it's been a day "with issues" - we escape. Driving the truck through the campground back to our site can be so liberating cause we are not the owners but then we seldom had a day with issues.

It's about that time to pack up and head south, and I am anxious to see Sister and family, shop at some of my favorite haunts, load up on supplies that I have not been able to get here, get myself to Trader Joe's as no TJ's here.........can you imagine a sweet town of 10,000 and no Trader Joe's.............BAH!!!!!!!!!!!

We are going to workamp this winter season...........just don't know where yet.............stay tuna'd
