I also thought I would post up as a reminder that the Creekside Caf? has the last smoked BBQ dinner of the season on Saturday evening.  They have a local guy come in each weekend during their busy season and the BBQ has been very good in years past.  I would encourage everyone to give it a try.  I believe they start serving dinner @ 5:00pm.

Also as a reminder that the same Creekside Caf? serves breakfast daily so if you're running late before a run or just don't feel like cooking in the morning it is also quite good food.

What is everyone's thoughts on Happy Hour time?  I was thinking about 4:00pm for Happy Hour then those that want to go and grab some smoked BBQ can wander over to the caf? and have dinner and relax.  I believe they will also have live music, at least they have the past couple of years.  Nothing big, just some local talent.

Chrystal and I will be in site #95.  If there is enough room we can just have Happy Hour there unless someone has a larger site.  We can also discuss more in depth on Saturday afternoon.

Thank you and we will see everyone on Saturday.

Drive safely.

Mike

Great Pics  Gary!

Such a difference from the freezing cold wind and rain and hail of last year!

Black Bear is on agenda for  tomorrow. 8:45 driver meeting and 9 am departure.

Reminder Happy Hour at the Cafe patio after  the runs. Whenever it  may be.  I'm going to be prepared  for Thursday  grill your own.
Welcome to George and Diane tonight. New arrivals! A long commute of less than 10 miles!

We made it back to Taos albeit with some dust/wind/thunder storms.

Thanks to all for another fun tour of the Rockies but especially to Mike/Crystal for all the effort to set it up and Bill Roscoe for leading many trails.  We did manage to see the Elk herd that Mike/Crystal noticed just north of the RV Park. 

Nice to be home again though.

Gary/Coleen.

wow just saw this thread this morning after a long 2 week trip to Ouray Breckenridge Moab, and Zion... did a few easy trails in ouray as we had our granddaughter with us and didn't want to risk black bear or immogene...she had a blast at the hot springs pools and we did yankee boy, and engineer pass to animas forks, and came home on last dollar road... you can't throw a rock in ouray without hitting a jeep... it truly is the jeep capitol but then we made it to moab and it is now a tossup .... maybe next year we could hook up with the group.... 06 rubicon and 34 ft la palma....jeep has a 4 inch lift on 35's.....sounds like you had a great group and time....Butch and Jean

Thanks to everyone who made it to the 2018 Ouray rally.  Chrystal and I had a great time and sure hope everyone else enjoyed it.  It was great to see many of our RVforum framily again and we were able to make some new acquaintances as well.
