Stillwater Pass

I think we finally learned that we can’t expect to find really good empty boondocking sites on Saturdays.

This past Saturday, we arrived at Stillwater Pass outside of Rocky Mountain National Park and drove past 3 miles of camping sites until we found a place where we could join some other RVs for the night. (pictured above)

The spot wasn’t so bad, it just wasn’t one we could work from because the cell signal was only 1x of Verizon.

Lucky for us, a great site opened up on Sunday afternoon. It has 2 bars of (un-boosted) Verizon LTE and great views of the National Park.

Curtis update: We went back to the vet Saturday morning and his eye pressure was still very low. The doc prescribed eyedrops with prednisone and a plan that would take us until October when we see our vet in Oregon.

Dinner Last Night:
Brussels Sprout Fried Rice. This was really good. I used cashews instead of pine nuts and maple syrup instead of agave.

      Colorado has been awesome. It’s beautiful this time of year and haven’t had to pay for camping for the 6 weeks we’ve been here!
