Hubby and I were definitely not ready to leave and since the campground was only half full, we figured if we really wanted to extend our stay at the Glacier Basin Campground, we probably could.
But as we were enjoying our morning coffee, we watched the wall of weather move ever more closely toward our camp. That was our cue that it was indeed time to move on. That sky looked nasty and I assure you a dusting of snow that third week of August was not out of the question.
We arrived back at the Westminster Elks Lodge and set up residency in ‘our’ spot. The camp host informed us some folks arrived the previous day asking about us. Hmm, were these blog followers or folks we’d already met somewhere along our travels? Turns out both.
We met Bob and Kathy a couple of winters ago at Lost Dutchman State Park in Arizona. We were RV newbies with our new fifth wheel and had been on a six week road trip. We credit Kathy for fixing our TV.
You see, no matter what we tried or who we asked, we couldn’t get any reception with the RV antenna. That is until Kathy asked, “Did you push the little button and get a green light”. Say what? Ah ha, all this time Al and I had been focused on the living room area around our one and only TV and the magic button was located in a cabinet in the bedroom. There sure is a learning curve to this RVing thing but once learned, you don’t forget 😉
We had a great time visiting with this couple and swapping travel tales before it was time for them to hit the road and start their slow meander back to Phoenix, AZ. You can read about how we met Bob and Kathy here.
Although the Elks campground facility has worked out beautifully this summer allowing us to park close to our daughters place, it isn’t the most scenic and I’m all about the views. I’m happiest when I have lovely scenery around me and if we get to park near water to boot…. well let’s just say, I’m in my element.
So when I heard fellow blogger LuAnn was going to be camped just north of Denver at the St. Vrain State Park which has mountain views AND ponds, I couldn’t make a reservation fast enough, even if for just a few days….
