Colorado Camping

OMG y’all. These moose were all around me for the fourteen days in Deer Lake. This is a campground in the Gunnison National Forest. What? I am paying for camping? Yes. About 40 years ago I loaned a woman $2,500 for a down payment on a house. She paid it back last month. So, since my loan to her went for a house that $2,500 is now going to my luxurious camping. With well water. With bathrooms. I figure it will last about 2 years. What luxury, thanks to eartheyes!

I like this cool weather in the middle of summer.  At 10,519′. It started off with frost covering the trucks in the mornings. Then warm up to 75 in the day. I stood on the lip of the lake and let the mountain air blow dry my hair. Yummy. I hiked and hiked and read books.

Off to another secret hidden spot.–
