Nov 5, 2013 - More From Rifle

This will be out last update from Colorado, we are driving to Moab, Utah in the morning. We enjoyed our back to nature stay in the woods. Every morning while having our coffee we watched the rabbits, wild turkeys, deer and much more in our yard. We visited four state parks in the area and enjoyed each of them, they all have something special to see and do. We totally enjoyed camping at Rifle Gap, but we must admit we missed our cell phones and the Internet. A few days in the wild will surely let you know just how addicted you are to Wi-Fi....

Nov 4, 2013 - Rifle Falls State Park

We visited another awesome Colorado State Park today, that pass we bought when we first arrived in Colorado has really paid off. We save money every time we visit the parks for the day and even more when we camp in the parks.

The falls is a lush area of trees and greenery kept moist by the spray of the cascading triple waterfall. The falls are 80 feet high, I took...

Aug 8, 2012 - Journey to Rifle Gap State Park

Left Mountaindale and headed towards Glenwood Springs and Rifle Gap State Park. One of the nicest state parks we've seen. The drive in was fairly remote but lots of folks there. The lake was terribly low, but fishermen were still fishing. Enjoyed the stay here. Tomorrow we head to Glenwood Springs for the pool !!!

May 16, 2010 - Rifle Falls State Park, CO

We stayed at Rifle Fall State Park in Colorado. A small but gorgeous park with access to a mountain lake, national forest and Rifle Mountain Park (a park run by the town of Rifle that is a Rock climbing Mecca). The state park is also very Jack friendly. Short hikes to a waterfall, caves, fish hatchery (feeding the fish is cool), small “wiggly” suspension bridge, irrigation canals, ladders and snakes. (I am not sure the parents were as excited about the snakes) Jack spent days playing with his bug catching kit and his imaginary snake...

Oct 3, 2009 - Rocky Mt.

Saturday, Oct. 3, Granby, Colorado, Stillwater Campground We drove through the Rockys today. They are beautiful. John took hundreds of pics of which I must choose a few to show you. It was a beautiful drive, but me being a little afraid of heights, it was a bit hairy at times. We found a nice campground at Granby, called Stillwater. Beautiful lake and view, only part of the campground open because of the season. Sunday, Oct. 4, Sulphur Hot Springs, Colorado, Campground Another travel day. Not too far down the road was Sulphur Hot Springs,...
