After arriving in Grand Junction Colorado and overnighting at the exceedingly clean and reasonable Junction West RV Park, we made our way farther east toward Denver...

Last night we overnighted at the overpriced and under-featured Dakota Ridge RV Park during a fierce windstorm that knocked the power out to the whole area. Very pleasant weather this morning to push farther east, though we haven't decided yet whether to go via I-80 or I-70...

This evening we're at Ruby's Inn near Bryce Canyon National Park. They have an RV campground that's not open yet, but they also have some RV spots with electrical hookup right behind the hotel, and that's where we're staying. This place is fantastic (best RV spot we've had so far), and we quickly decided to stay here tomorrow night as well so we can enjoy Bryce Canyon at leisure tomorrow.
