Durango, Colorado – June 28-31, 2018

We were able to get a spot at the Fairgrounds in Durango for a week.  It is very close to Molly and right next store to the Recreation Center.  It is, however, in a parking lot with no shade – but at least it has a partial hook up for water and electric.

It was nice to see dad and daughter together again at we took a break at the summit.  The smoke from the burning fires creates an unnatural foggy image.  Molly kept telling us that the view is normally breathtaking.
