we moved camp and are now at Blue Spruce RV park
North of Vallecito
Lake bordering the mountains. The RV
parks new owners say they will be fixing up the park and putting in new sites for big Homeys like ours. We have free satellite TV
here, our satellite
gets no reception because of the trees, and free wifi

I am playing with google earth for adding a map…
so far I don’t like the way it looks
but if you click on the map below you can see where we are.
I am also playing with the new beta version of blogger . i want my posts to look the same in explorer and FireFox….so far with the new posts everything looks good in explorer but the older ones are a little cockeyed…but if you press the back page and go to the page you are looking for it seems to work better then scrolling way down on the page you are on…. my new posts should work fine….its just the old ones that are cockeyed…
FireFox seems to have no bugs…
if there are any probs with any browser please comment…thanks
This was a Very nice hike…about 6 miles for me and another 1 and a half for Jeff, he decided to go up a bit further while i decided to hunt for mushrooms.
Had a nice ranger led hike to the Long house in the wetherill area of Mesa Verde Park.

Below is a video clip of our hike.
Wow, what a difference a Day makes and oh yeah. some elevation changes things too.
The Colorado late summer monsoons continue in the mountains. Great for the mushrooms.
Had some rain and hail, but enough sun to make it a nice day. Not to mention the mushrooms.
Found quite a few aspen boletes…forgot to take pics. also some bears head….
Drove to Canyons of the Ancients and Hovenweep today. Close to Utah in desert southwest type terrain. Old Pueblo ruins. Did a four hour hike in the heat….high 80s. Very cool remains of dwellings. Many built in existing rock formations.

What a big Dam….wow
we will be houseboating above the dam…
Well our previous hike was HOt Hot ….so this was a bit different…
and Brendan also pointed out the three toed woodpecker…a rare find…
This was a Hot day…maybe in the ninetys…so it was hard to go up, especially at the higher elevations…it was still a nice hike, met up with a bison, saw some petrified wood.
