Even the best laid plains fail when there is a hot springs and bar involved.
This was a short day with everybody taking their time.
We hit 3000 miles today
A lazy day spent saying our goodbyes to the friends that drove in to visit last night. All of us took the time to see the Sinks Canyon located about 6 miles outside of town. The water of the PoPo Agie River disappears into a canyon wall and reappears 1/4 mile downstream at “The Rise” in about 2 hours. There are large numbers of native Rainbow and Brown trout that live at the base of The Rise since they cannot go further to lay their eggs and because people feed them from the overlook. The water flowing into The Rise enteis not as much as one might expect. It can be seen re-entering the river on the top left of the second photo. Later, Don & Audrey took the dogs on a short hike to a 100′ waterfall along the same river.
We celebrated the end of a long day at the windy Stillwater USFS Campground on Lake Granby.
We rented a beautiful duplex for 2 days in the mountains of Colorado. The day started with a 6 a.m. dog-moose encounter on the street outside the house. Everyone lounged at the house watching the U.S. Open and sitting in the hot tub. Tucker & Polaris took Don for a hike to an abandoned mining town for Father’s day.
