I found an awesome place to camp last night after leaving Rocky Mountain National Park. It is near Fresco right on the Blue River. It is so peaceful and enjoyable. I love being stress free, with time to enjoy the beauty of life. I am so blessed to be traveling and seeing this beautiful country.
View with the back doors of the van open.
I sit and enjoy the scenery while sipping on a beer. I talk to another camper who is here for the fishing. He and his wife live near Denver and do some traveling in a truck camper so he knows the area well. He recommends numerous places to see in the parks I plan to visit.
I like the non busy lifestyle. It’s a treat to wake up without an alarm and do what I please during the day. I like to eat when I feel hungry and not to have to do a force feed. I know first hand how people are pushed to their limits in their jobs and get burned out. That was me. The job controlled me until I reached my breaking point. This new door that has opened is freeing and glorious. I love it!
It is a nasty outside this morning. It is cold, in the 40’s and raining, but I don’t have to get up. I stay in bed and drink hot chocolate enjoying the sound of the rain on the van roof.
I hope this rain will help with some of the fires out here. It sure has helped cool things off some. The temperatures have been glorious this past week.
I make popcorn for the first time in the van. Some of it burns on the bottom of the pan, but most of it is delicious.
