Colorado Springs – Garden of the Gods RV Park – View from Our Motorhome – See the Many Camping Choices – We Often See Tents and All Sorts of RV Styles – We Look Forward to Our 2017 Tour –


We were making our way back to our Arizona winter campground. It was late September of 2016. We stayed a week in Colorado Springs and spent a few days with our good friends who live there and love it. See the mountain range behind the trees? I never cease to marvel at those mountain peaks. Mountain roads make me nervous. Steve doesn’t mind them at all.

We left Colorado at the end of the week heading south toward Las Cruces, New Mexico, where we would spend two weeks with some other friends that also own a motorhome. They met us in a campground in Las Cruces called Sunny Acres. They reserved the campsite next to ours. We celebrated so much those two weeks that sadly my waistline has not yet returned to its former state. I’m working on it. Patiently. Steadily.


This Las Cruces campsite was larger than most. We had a carport for our jeep as well as a spacious area for Steve to erect our canopy. Behind the canopy was our patio with a table and chairs under the awning attached to the coach. Steve never tires of building our recreation areas and taking them down again as we move from one campground to another. We are thinking about our 2017 tour and feeling the urge to get on the road again.

    • Hi Jennifer. Thank you for stopping by. We are starting to put together a plan for 2017 with one mandatory stop on Long Island in June. This one will take us across the United States again this year.

      Your “Pebbles” poem is touching. Consolations to you and your family in your loss. Blessings to you, Jennifer…

    You did have a spacious area to set up your outdoor space. I’m glad you got to do a lot of celebrating, even if you are still paying the price! I wish it came off as easily as it goes on. Blessings to you!

    • It’s true. We love it. I knew Steve would like it, but I was surprised by how much I like it. We have been here three months. A nice rest from traveling. Now we are getting excited and are developing a 2017 tour plan. We may start out in Albuquerque this time. We will take our time getting there, stopping along the way. Thanks for traveling with us via blog posts. Blessings to you, Patricia…
