Yesterday was a travel day.......... Friday the 13th...... that should tell the tale of the day.  This week the side awning spring broke - do Denny bungeed it up.  Leaving Moab before 9am and it is already 85 - the dash air conditioning decided not to work, so ran the generator for the whole RV air conditioning.  And our step decided it didn't want to work - so traveled with it out.
The trip to Buena Vista was to be about 350 miles...... we were sure we could find an easy place to park along the way.  That didn't happen so we just kept on driving.  I-70 is a very scenic drive - curing between the mountains, valleys, the Colorado River.  #24 was closed with a road cave in, so we went over Vail Pass (10,666'), then Freemont Pass (11,500+') south to Buena Vista....... a beautiful valley surrounded by many fourteeners (that is mtn peaks over 14,000').   We've gone from 100+ to cool 60's with rain.
Today we went to the Leadville Fish Hatchery to see some friends from North Ranch that are volunteering for the summer.  Enjoyed the tour and learning more about trout.
Scenic - incredible I-70

We're gathering with some friends for some mtn 4 wheeling adventures.  Should be a fun week.
