Back from Colorado Springs, CO

My Wife (Lindy) & I are back from our trip up to Colorado with our Daughter (Whit), her Husband (Rob) & their 3 year old Son (LittleMan). Got back home around 4:30 pm Tuesday. We left Tuesday last week. We were in our Scamp, they rented an older Aliner from Davis-Monthan AFB in Tucson.

Eight Days. 1,272 miles (we did all the touring in Rob/Whit's Santa Fe, therefore almost all miles on GPS was driving to one camping site to the next). The GPS had us moving (only in the Pickup - 23 hrs. 40 mins.).

It was 330 miles to Heron Lake State Park just south of Chama, NM, the first day. Another 330 miles to the FamCamp at the Air Force Academy by Colorado Springs. 310 miles to Hyde Memorial State Park above Santa Fe, NM. About 295 miles from Hyde Park to Home in Las Cruces. About 7 miles of searching for a working water hydrant at Hyde Park & a little driving to the bathhouse at Heron Lake.

Didn't do as well on mpg this trip, 12.2 mpg to Heron Lake, then it came up a little on the way to Colorado Springs; 14.4 mpg total trip.

We had a really great time, very enjoyable trip: Heron Lake SP, Air Force Academy FamCamp & Hyde Memorial SP Sites & Sights for a full Report.
