We left a 40 degree Cheyenne on Thursday morning for the 240 mile drive down to a KOA south of Pueblo, CO. The trip down was uneventful and about 30 miles inside of Colorado, we began seeing much more farming than ranching and the terrain was more rolling like South Dakota.
All photos can be enlarged by clicking on them.
After talking to some folks at the campground, they advised that I-25 was a better road than US-85 and it was a pretty good road. We did elect to take the E470 toll road around the east side of Denver and I’m glad I did. The road was in great shape and we avoided all of the traffic and hassle of going through Denver.
The terrain got pretty dry near the campground.
We arrived at the Pueblo South KOA and found it to be one of the nicer places we’ve stayed with plenty of room and very nice grass between the sites.
Our old guy looks pretty shabby amongst these newer models. This is my three girls in their post drive mode.
The highlight of this day was to get an inside tour of this guy – tallest motorhome I’ve ever seen.
It’s a Prevost by Liberty Coach and rather than being on a truck chassis like most motorhomes, it’s a bus which rides and drives better and should be good for many, many miles – Dolly’s is this kind. The owners are first time and full time RVers and rather than work their way up through several coaches they took the plunge on this two year old one. The interior is way fancier than our home and they are all made-to-order. According to the owner, the chassis alone (all stainless steel) is $500,000 before they start adding the house on top.
It was warm when we arrived and very quickly cooled off but we still sat out and watched the sun disappear behind the mountain.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by Almost Heaven South.
