Our First Winter Trip in an Airstream

Camping in the shadow of Pikes Peak, Colorado
On a whim and with a nice weekend forecast, we packed the camper after work and headed out to Mueller State Park for our first real winter camping experience in an Airstream.   It was about a two and a half hour drive to our destination, so we arrived under starry skies well after dark.   The campground was completely empty.  I began to worry a little about why we were the only people in the entire Denver and Colorado Springs metro areas this weekend that thought camping in the middle of February at 9500 feet was a good idea.

Scouting out Mueller State Park, Colorado

One of the best sites, IMHO.

We checked out Mueller State Park yesterday looking for some potential summer campsites. For anyone visiting or camping in Colorado this year - this is a beautiful state park located 30 miles outside of Colorado Springs. Two thumbs up!
