Golden Days in Golden, Colorado

I finished up my business with South Dakota and started my trek back to Colorado.  I decided to break it up into two days and stopped in Gering, NE and ended up in the most amazing park! (  Biggest site I have ever had, most cable channels I have ever had and good, fast wifi.  All for $27!!!
Now THAT is a Big Site!

My View (With 2 UFOs on the Left Side - Have No Idea Where They Came From!)
 Sometimes I don't know why I end up where I do, or for what purpose. While in Gering I needed to have my RV looked at after an exhausting day on the road. I drove to one RV repair place and no one was there and I could not reach them on their phone. After a trip back to the RV park and a trip to another RV repair guy, now totally exhausted, I met Butch. Butch fixed my problem and all he asked for in return was a hug. I guess Butch needed a hug and I needed to be there to give him one.

I was tempted to stay for several days to re-energize and take advantage of the site and the amenities but I was on a waiting list for the park in Golden, CO and when they called to let me know a site was available I opted for the road.

I heard about the park in Golden from Amy of  I met Amy and Rod when they stayed in Truth or Consequences, NM and knew that our routes would be similar.  Thanks again Amy for this beautiful gem of a park!

Beyond That Fence is Clear Creek

Clear Creek
Kayaking Clear Creek
Tubing Clear Creek
Even Dogs Enjoy Clear Creek! 
The creek is freezing but the temps have been in the high 90s so I have seen a lot of action on the path across from me as people head further up stream with their assortment of tubes and kayaks and the intention of floating down stream.  I hear people screaming as the rapids douse them in the frigid water which makes for good entertainment :).

There is always a waiting list for this park and 14 days is the maximum stay.  I will stay my 14 days and then move to the higher elevation of Crested Butte and hopefully cooler weather.  Who'd thought it would be so hot in Golden, Colorado!?


  1. Whoa - that kayaking water is a little "fast" for me! It's so nice that Bruce came to your rescue. There are still nice people in the world! :-)

    1. Yah, a little fast for me as well! Helmets are recommended.

  2. Ooh so love your blog. I'm craving either Santa Fe or Colorado...but now that it's warm, I'm thinkin Colorado. Wish I was camping, but...sigh...maybe down the road.

    1. I am hoping that it will be cooler in the upper elevations of Colorado. Still too warm for me....
