In the previous post, I reported on the trip segment from Flintstone, GA through the Rocky Mountain National Park on our way to Boise, Idaho. We had traversed five states and part of Colorado. I’ll pick up the story as we get ready to depart Stillwater Campground on Lake Granby, Colorado, excited about heading to Moab, Utah. We begin with the 6th day of our adventure, in Stillwater, Colorado.

Ever since we before we got our first RV (a 36.5′ motorhome) and especially after we got our T@b travel trailer in late 2014 I had wanted to do a “big trip” out west, including basing at our daughter’s family’s home in Boise, ID. My wife was reluctant, and so far all the trips to see the “family out west” had been via airplane. This time it changed.
Yeah, I wanted to spend time like this, taking our accommodation with us. Rocky Mountain National Park at about 11,000′.
