We had a great little sitting area below us but unfortunately didn't get to use it as it was TOO FRIGGING COLD!! One day we even got a little snow showers but not quite cold enough to stick on the ground. This is on the list to return to when the weather is warmer. We still enjoyed our time here though. Rimrock Road is a 23 mile drive through spectacular canyons cut deep into sandstone and granite rock formations. This is an area of desert land high on the Colorado Plateau, with pinion and juniper forests on the plateau. We drove part of it stopping at a number of the overlooks for amazing views of the rock formations.
We came up Rim Rock from Fruita about 7 or 8 miles to the campground. Another day we drove the rest of the road that ends in Grand Junction. We did a little shopping and then went back up the hill through Fruita. Below is one of the tunnels we went through. There were two between Fruita and the campground and one more closer to Grand Junction.
Had a nice sunset one night.
Of course Saturday night found us watching the sixth game of the first round playoffs against Dallas. It looked like there was going to be a game seven up until the last 3 minutes of the game when the Ducks scored twice to tie the game and then won in overtime. Another nail bitter. Ducks are on to the second round which turned out to be against the Kings. This is the first time the cross town rivals play against each other in the Stanley Cup Finals in the 20 years the Ducks have been a team. I took some pictures of the tv as we weren't there in person to see them. Sob sob. GO DUCKS.
