Mountains to the West
High mountain meadow
Wild Flowers along the trail
High mountain stream
We have really been enjoying our time here in Vallecito, the weather is great (ok maybe a little cool in the mornings) we awoke to 38 degrees this morning. That being said, we'll take highs in the 70s all day long compared to the hot August days at the lower elevations!!!
That's it for todays adventure, we'll see you again soon from the Colorado Mountains!!!

Our time here in La Veta is up in the morning, and we'll be making our way to the Durango area. We have reservations at Vallecito Lake Resort RV Park, up in the mountains Southeast of Durango. We'll be staying there for at least a week (maybe more) while we explore the San Juan Mountains. We have really enjoyed La Veta, it's a great little mountain town and we highly recommend you visit if you are ever in the area. It's alittle off the beaten path, but that's what makes it a gem of a place.
That's all for now and we'll see you soon from Lake Vallecito.

Meadows and Mountains

We have been enjoying this area and the Small Town of La Veta. It is your standard little mountain town with a short but lively main street. Yesterday was Farmers Market day, we took advantage of the fresh grown veggies for last nights pasta dish, it's amazing the difference in taste compared to supermarket veggies. Town is just a couple of blocks down from the RV Park and I have been enjoying so much forget to take the camera to get shots of the town. Oh well maybe next posting.
Not much else going on, just exploring the town, area and enjoying the weather, August and the high so far has been 80. So, until next time.......................see ya then.

Now, you would think calling your Roadside Assistance Carrier and Having your tire fixed would be a fairly simple and painless task.........you would be wrong or at least in our case we were....lol. First we called Good Sam, who were very helpful, but they said we had to buy a new tire and could not have the old one fixed. I was not about too buy a 400.00 tire until we had this one looked at. Next we called our insurance providers roadside Asst, but they weren't much help either. They sent out a guy in a pick up with a jack and some hand tools................that was no help as couldn't get the tire off. Long story shorter, I aired up the tire and limped the rig down to the local tire shop. They found a nail in the tire, removed it and put a good patch on it. We were good to go after that and of course several wasted hours.

We said our good byes and left Dumas this morning and headed north to Guymon OK. We will be here for a couple of days, which will give us a chance to visit with Sheryl's brother and also stop by the Family Farm up in Kansas. We did manage to find an interesting RV Park here in the Oklahoma Panhandle, but I'll leave that for the next post. So until then............................
