Yesterday was our last day in Durango. We didn't do much. Mostly, we hung out in the RV Park and began the process of packing up the motor home. Then, after lunch, we decided to take
one last drive through the mountains.
We stopped at the
Alpine Rose RV Park to pick up information for future use. They are located about 2 miles north of Durango on 550. However, they only have a weekly rate which seemed pretty pricey at somewhere between $250 and $300 depending on the type of site you wanted for high season. Maybe, I would have to think twice about staying here for a month.
Our drive took us on into town and then out a back road. We saw
some beautiful homes high up above the river. And, we some some
beautiful barns in the valleys not far from the river's edge.
We climbed high in the mountains where we found
Lemon Reservoir. All that was missing was the moose!
We hated to have to turn around, but our day was drawing to a close and we still needed to have dinner and finish packing.
Once we were back to the campground, we grilled our hamburgers and Andrew made us
one last campfire that we
enjoyed until the last ember burned out.
This morning, we were up early. Unfortunately, Mark had to get out his drill motor and retract that stubborn back jack. Guess, we are going to have to talk to Tiffin about the situation...ugh!
Once all the jacks were up and slides were in, we were ready to roll as we had a long travel day ahead of us.
I got this one
last shot of Durango and we climbed up 550 South.
All, too soon, we were seeing
the mountains of New Mexico.
It was on through Albuquerque, a quick stop for lunch, and by late afternoon, we were welcomed
to Texas. However, our day was not quite over. We drove on to Amarillo, where we are staying overnight at the Oasis RV Park.
Tomorrow's drive will take us on into Fort Worth.
We have had a great 10 days in Colorado, but, the family vacation fun is not over. We have just 4 days to regroup before we fly out with Scott, Jennifer, and the kids for a week in Vegas. And, the summertime adventures continue!
