Wyoming Camping Rocks!

Curt Gowdy State Park
We hitched up the Bambi, bound for a location twenty-four miles west of Cheyenne, WY, for possibly the last camping trip of the season.   The trip took us through quintessential Wyoming, with expansive skies and endless windswept plains that seemed to roll on forever.    Heading west at sunset, the sky began to burst with color, painting the clouds with every hue of red and orange imaginable. It reminded me that sometimes half the enjoyment of camping is the experience on the way to your destination.

Mountain Biking in Fruita, Colorado

Highline Lake Campground

Just off Interstate 70, near the dusty Colorado-Utah border, Highline Lake State Park sits as an oasis for campers and mountain bikers.    With Airstream Bambi in tow, I joined a Denver mountain biking club for a long weekend of great single-track riding in this area.

Labor Day 2011 at Lake Pueblo State Park

Bambi and TV

Work and other commitments have kept me from hitching up and heading out for a few weeks, but the Labor Day holiday finally offered the chance to camp at Lake Pueblo State Park.   It was a fun weekend of relaxing in the camper, enjoying the company of some biking buddies, tubing down a lazy river, and mountain biking in the nearby hills around the reservoir.
