This is Garden of the Gods campground, an RVC property, Good Sam park and is not cheap! Their only good thing is proximity to what we want to see (along with lots of other people). I would not return here with a big rig.
The kids arrived in Denver after an extra stop in Albuquerque due to storms. They spent the night at a hotel and arrived at their cabin in the campground late afternoon on Sunday. I fixed roasted chicken, stuffing, corn, a tomato/onion/cucumber salad and rolls for dinner and the 8 of us ate together.
Bill found a loose connection to the motor where the fuse keeps blowing so he tightened that. We ran the vanity and kitchen slide in and out a bit and it seems ok. The factory said they are replacing that fuse with a breaker now so we aren't the only ones having this problem. Of course that doesn't fix whatever the root problem is, only makes the fix quicker! He also replaced catches on my laundry cabinet that had broken. He is our McGyver for fixing things!
Monday we headed first to Garden of the Gods park. It was crowded with parking being the main obstacle especially with two cars. It is beautiful and the kids loved it.
We visited the center to view the exhibits and look around in general.
Then we headed to Manitou Springs Cliff Dwellings. It was the first time the kids have seen Native American pueblo housing.
Gathered in a tipi which is not indigenous to these local tribes.
Drawings that are preserved.
We took a time out before heading to Pueblo to see the Redhead Express at the Pueblo County Fair. You may recall this is one of our favorite Rio Grande Valley groups that we have followed for probably 8 years. I was concerned about the kids' reaction but they absolutely loved it!
