9/6/10, Estrella, CO - Well, there I was, heading north for the Arkansas River. After talking with a couple knowledgeable people, I decided that in the interest of public safety if was better not to drive down the river canyon. By heading east, I would be up against the canyon wall through blind curves and traffic would have a hard time seeing me. This condition would persist for two days of travel. So, I turned tail and headed south. My destination was to exit the valley to the south and head for Walsenburg, CO.
After making 27 miles on the 3rd, I camped just north of Monte Vista, and had dinner with Melissa that night. We decided to give it another go.
After driving another 27 miles on the 4th, I pulled into Melissa’s place and have been here since then. Since Barry has been querying the GPS, good sleuths have known this by looking at the Google Maps page.
