Staying in Granby, CO, is great for so many reasons - the proximity to Rocky Mountain National Park, the small town vibes and nice people, and the gorgeous surrounding areas.

When we booked our stay at River Run RV Resort in Granby, we chose it to be close to Rocky Mountain National Park - and wow were we close! We were about 15 miles from one of the entrances, so we got to go to the park twice, which was so awesome. We also got… Continue reading Rocky Mountain National Park – Part 1!
A case for visiting small towns! I grew up in Del Rio, a city of about 40,000 people, with one hospital and one high school. After I graduated from high school, I moved to Austin to attend The University of Texas at Austin, where the student population exceeded that of my hometown! It was a… Continue reading Granby, CO and Why You Should Visit Small Towns
When Rueben and I started RVing in June 2020, we talked about where we wanted to go, and Colorado was my first choice.

So, Albuquerque was our next stop! The drive there was pretty beautiful. We stayed… Continue reading Albuquerque, Amarillo, and a New Truck!
After staying in Alamogordo, New Mexico, we decided to go north and planned to stay at Water Canyon, a beautiful spot in the Cibola National Forest. The drive there wasn't bad, either. On our way, we stopped to see Valley of Fires, an area made up of lava flow from 5,000 years ago. The… Continue reading Forest Parking and When We Realized We Needed a Truck
