Join us monthly as we write about our camping adventures. What went right, what went wrong, what we did and who we met.
Turquoise Lake, Leadville, CO
I love camping in Colorado. I feel like you just can’t beat the Rocky Mountains. Since we live in Colorado the mountains are close and more convenient to access camping spots if we are taking off just for the weekend.
One of my favorite adventures was when we went to Turquoise Lake. We had never been to Leadville and heard it was beautiful, so we went. Whoever told us it was beautiful was right!
Growing up in Kansas City I thought when our family went canoeing and camping along the rivers in Missouri that nothing would beat it, but I was wrong. I will say camping as a child with my family was one of my fondest memories growing up.
Grand Lake has so many activities and beauty that everyone can find something to do or look at! Check out one of this months blogs, Grand Camping in Grand Lake, for fun adventures you don't want to miss while visiting Grand Lake Colorado.
Ruby Mountain Campground
-Sunday, February 18, 2018
Ruby Mountain is a relatively new campground in Chaffee County, Colorado. It is located on the Arkansas River near Nathrop, between Salida and Buena Vista, and is adjacent to the newly designated Browns Canyon National Monument.
One of the few times my husband and I “disagree” is when we are trying to fit our fifth wheel camper into a camping spot in a campground. After getting our camper neither one of us ever considered that parking might be a challenge or cause us any embarrassment.
