Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park from ... Cat Patches

"Wow" was the word of the day yesterday. And I guess the idiom "third time's a charm" fits here as well since it was the third time we'd planned to visit the park, but only the first successful attempt. It was so vast and deep, it was difficult to capture in photographs, but I did my best. Really, you just need to add this place to your bucket list if you haven't visited already.


We first stopped off at the visitor center. There were no shot glasses, but I picked up a refrigerator magnet. This isn't ...

Montrose, Colorado from ... Cat Patches

It was a short day of driving yesterday...less than 200 miles...through some of the most breathtaking landscape I've ever seen. It wasn't on purpose we chose the route we traveled. We just got very lucky that it was the shortest route between Point A and Point B.

When we left the RV park in Dolores, we Smitty was busy doing his morning yoga routine.


Namaste.

Only one barn was documented on yesterday's trip.


The barn was just a barn, but the setting was idyllic.


We were using this book as a guide since we were ...

Hovenweep National Monument from ... Cat Patches

We set out on a long drive over paved, but bumpy roads around noon yesterday. Our original intent was to visit Canyons of the Ancients National Monument. We first needed to stop off at the RV park office where the park owner convinced us to spend our time at Hovenweep National Monument. As it turns out, Canyons of the Ancients encompasses and surrounds three of four separate sections of Hovenweep National Monument. The monument was established in June of 2000 in order to preserve the largest concentration of archaeological sites in the United States, primarily Ancestral Puebloan ruins. As of ...

Dolores, Colorado from ... Cat Patches

We had kind of a long day of driving yesterday...over hill and dale. It was raining and cloudy for much of the day. We headed west on US Hwy 160. The scenery was lovely despite the rain and gloom. There were a lot of rustic barns along the way.



In the first half hour or so, we passed through the little town of Del Norte, Colorado. There isn't much to say about the town itself, but I noticed on every lamp post was a metal sculpture. Each one was different. I managed to photograph quite a few, but ...

Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve from ... Cat Patches

Before I tell you about the park, I have a few pictures to catch up on from the night we arrived here. First, the KOA where we're staying has bunnies! Excuse me for just a minute...Squee!!!


Sadie and Smitty watched one nibbling grass just outside our door. They were in sneak 'em up mode...at times with their ears laid flat. That bunny had no idea how lucky he was.


As the sun set, we were treated to some beautiful fiery skies. It looked different depending on which direction we looked. To the back of our rig...

Time Traveling: Taylor Park Central, Texas Lakes and Union Park from ... Cat Patches

Good morning again, my friends. This is the third and final post in a series to catch up from our week without internet access. Let's just get to it, shall we? 

When I left off in my previous post, I mentioned that we'd taken a day off from riding when the weather turned windy and wet. The next morning, was bright and sunny again. I took the opportunity to photograph the hill we could see from the RV, off in the distance. Those sections you see in the image below where there appear to be groomed ski slopes ...

Time Traveling: Taylor River Road, Tin Cup, Cumberland Pass from ... Cat Patches

This is the second time-traveling post to catch up on the days missed last week. Let's back up to last Sunday...a week ago from today, and then we'll move forward from there. We had some breakfast and then got out early for our first ATV ride of the trip. Mike rides around our property at home quite often. I hadn't done much riding since our trip to Moab some four years ago, and so we took an easy trail this first day. As I mentioned, we were riding through open range most of the time.

Back in Civilization! from ... Cat Patches

Hey! How are you? I've missed you guys! We find ourselves a week down the road since our last chat, now located in Alamosa, Colorado, just outside Great Sand Dunes National Park. It's been quite a week of adventure, and I'm going to catch you up on what we've been doing via a series of time-traveling posts. There's so much to tell you, and I wish I could have been keeping up all along. We had no wi-fi in Taylor Park (our previous destination), and we had a very weak cell signal. Anything I could ...

Royal Gorge Bridge from ... Cat Patches

We had a marvelous day of sight-seeing, rest, and relaxation yesterday. It was good to take a break from driving. We're staying at a very nice KOA. You know I'm often complaining about KOA's. One positive about the KOA's is that they are nearly always available at any place, no matter how remote. These folks were very accommodating when we needed to reroute, and we ended up spending an extra night here. It was a good thing we spent the extra night because the bridge took up half a day's time. Had we spent just ...
