Fruita, CO: 10/1 – 10/3/18

We left Glenwood Springs and headed west on 70 to Fruita.  Scott had read that that there are some good mountain biking trails in this area.  We found a site at Monument RV Resort.

The following day we took our chances with the weather and went for a bike ride at Kokopelli’s Trailhead in Fruita.
