Full Time RV Travel–A Visit from the Family

Here we are in an amazing destination spot. . .

we invited all of our family to come, visit, and stay . . .

but, only a couple of them have taken us up on our invitation. . .

 

Anyway. . .one of the smart ones showed up this week. . .

my beautiful niece Andrea, and her hubby Bryan. . .

Alluvial Water Fall - Rocky Mountain National Park with Andrea and Bryan

Since Bryan lived in Colorado for a few years. . .

and since they visit family in Denver quite regularly. . .

I was sure they must have been to Rocky Mountain National Park numerous times. . .

but they said they hadn’t. . .and definitely wanted to go. . .yaaaa. . .

we got an early start. . .8 a.m. is very, very early for me to be out the door. . .geez!  LOL. . .

Bryan generously offered to drive. . .which Uncle David loved. . .

and all was going very well until after lunch when the clouds rolled in. . .

driving through the clouds at the summit, 12,167 feet elevation felt like being on an airplane. . .

Shortly past the summit. . .

on the western side of the mountains is the Continental Divide. . .

any time you see all the traffic stopping. . .

you know there’s going to be a treat. . .

and here was ours for the day. . .

made me very, very happy!

 

What a wonderful, fabulous day spent with family. . .

the only thing that would have made it better,

is if they could have stayed longer. . .

but we are very, very glad they came. . .

and we enjoyed every minute. . .

Love you guys!

 

Wishing you all safe travels. . .and lots of memories!
