Travels: Loveland, CO to Estes Park, UT – 38 miles (3328 total miles)
Accommodations: Spruce Lake RV Park – full hook-ups

After breakfast, clean-up, a few necessary Walmart purchases, and coffee in Dave’s hand we headed towards Estes Park, CO.  Loveland is a pretty little town – seems to have newer businesses in town, lakes, golf, and then farms on the outskirts. Our drive went through Loveland past these lakes, farmland, and into the mountains. We drove along the Big Thompson River and through these high walled rocky mountains studded with pine trees and the weekday fly fisherman.

We drove through the cute, tourist town of Estes Park and headed towards the County Park campground we had decided on – upon arrival we immediately started looking for a new one. It was so good. So, we turned around, headed back down the hill to Spruce Lake RV Park which is great!!

After getting “hooked up” at the site we headed into town. Dave worked at Starbucks, and the kids and I walked through Estes Park stores, along the river, played at a cute playground, and just explored the busy little town. Crazy how many people are on vacation in the middle of the week!

Back to the trailer, the kids played at the park, went swimming, we elk watched, and I made pasta with oysters from Washington. The kids were in bed early to catch up on some sleep. I took a long walk around the campground and enjoyed the views… Enjoying this time a lot!
