Final camping trips

Well, Susan has been getting around a bit better lately so we decide to take in the last 2 camp outs of the year. We went to Golden Gate Canyon the last weekend of September and had a good time.
To our surprise the aspens were turning a little later than usual and we saw some good color. We also had a nice visit with my cousin's son and family - on their way to Breckenridge. Alas, no pictures of them! :-(

The next weekend we went to Riverview RV Park in Loveland for the final Mile High Trailblazers Rally of the year. A trip to Estes Park and RMNP on Saturday netted some wildlife photo opportunities.

Some bighorn sheep in the Big Thompson Canyon.

A sleepy buck (13 points) lounging on the outskirts of Estes Park.

So, camping season is over but we are already making plans for next year (reservations require 6 months advance planning!) We hope to go to Mt Rushmore and maybe some locations we have not been before.
