Rocky Mountain national park

Where it's been raining all day, visibility less than 100 yards at higher elevation, and temps never out of the 50s. On my way tomorrow to....somewhere.

Hey Bob

Did you get the "oarlocks" option with your EggCamper?

You picked the wrong week to go to RMNP. Last week it was in the 90s in Golden, just a short distance south of you.

Might want to sit tight one more day. Very serious scary flooding in Boulder and Larimer counties this morning and more rain on the way. If you do head out, check road conditions first and stay safe!

Carefully watch the I-70 corridor for flooding and mud/rock slides if you head west.
I woke up to sunshine this morning, first time since Sunday.
Safe travels.

Bob, head north west, we are in a heat wave. Beach weather. Expected into the mid 80's again to day. Nothing but blue sky.

Right now, US-36 is closed at Lyons due to flooding so there's really limited options on leaving RMNP. I'm not sure I would be willing to go down the Big Thompson Canyon in a monsoon. Ah Colorado weather--you pays your money and you takes your chances.

I'm told that ALL roads out of Estes Park including Trail Ridge Road are closed. I signed for another day. A Scamp 13 has just set up next to me.

I have to agree! You never know what is coming down that canyon! If it's down pouring in the high country the water flows down ! Glad your staying put for now.



I would panic, cause I live in Loveland! But............... I am on vacation in CA and having too much fun to worry about something I can't control.

Hang in there at RMNP, it has to get better.

On the other hand, if it didn't, you are on high ground.

Wow Bob,

What an adventure to talk about around many campfires.

Hope you have plenty of food and do not have trouble with the elevation.

Please do keep us all posted. Some of us are worry nuts.

Nancy

Wowser,, got on FB after reading this post as well as, receiving many text checking on me.....


I am shocked at the flooding and the destruction that is occurring.


Thought I would share this link to a FB group I am on. They tend to have great CO camping info as well as pics. https://www.facebook.com/CampingInCo...ocation=stream


They will keep the flooding info updated if you are looking to get outta there!

After the Big Thompson Canyon flood of 1976 I was in the Army Reserves doing post-flood recovery analysis. I flew up the canyon in a little helicopter (flown by a 'Nam vet. Talk about "nap of the earth" flying!) to take photos of the damage and recovery-in-progress.

If it looks like it's even THINKING of doing anything other than a sprinkle, GET OUT OF THE CANYON. It was like someone took a scrub brush and just wiped the bottom of the river and the shores out. Nothing to be trifled with.

Robin, Is that a closed or open facebook group?
