On the way to Blanca, Co. back roads, of course, I came across the memorial to the Texas Cattle Drives on RT. 71 plenty of room to pull off and rest.
I stopped off in Limon at the KOA to do laundry and dump and fill and then on down to LaJunta KOA which is right next to a Walmart Supercenter to stock up on groceries. I know what to expect at KOA when I need to get things done.
The drive from Lajunta to Walsenburg on Rt.10 is scenic, mostly ranch land.
Lathrop State Park on Hwy160 just outside Walsenburg is a great place to stop. E/W hookups and great views.
The mountain pass on Rt.160 is a gradual rise and descent and Matilda, I finally decided on a name for my bounder, had no problems at all.
The Blanca RV Park wound up being my home for a month and I enjoyed every day in this charming little town. My view out my front window was Mt.Blanca.
Be sure to put Blanca RV Park on your list if in the area. Full hookups are $30 a night also weekly and monthly rates available. Great WIFI and helpful managers. The owner is hands-on and is working on an expansion of 50/30 amp sites. Convenience store, propane and gas on site. Noisy during the day from Rt160 and a railroad track in the back but quiet at night.
