We spent three days here. Unfortunately the weather has still not been nice to us. We had rain, cold, and winds so bad we had to bring in one of our big slides. At least we had nice views while we hunker down in the MH.
Saturday we took another drive on the Highway of Legends from this end of the road. We wanted to find the Blue Lake we couldn't find previously. We saw the sign and it was the same road we went down our last outing. We had stopped just short of the entrance. However, when we got to the gate it was closed. Bummer, we weren't even able to check it out. There is a campground there and we would have liked to see it for a future trip. Right near the entrance was a pull out area with a nice stream and a little snow. We hung out there for a short while.
Below are a couple more pictures of our drive and then a few more from the campground and the lake.
We want to come back to this area again when it will hopefully be warmer. We would come to both of these State Park. Besides kayaking there are also some nice hiking and biking trails we would like to explire.

Monday we continued north to our last Colorado spot. We had read in several blogs about Cherry Creek State Park being a good place to stay. It is in Aurora which is a suburb of Denver and so a great spot to stay if you want to explore Denver. We had made a reservation for 3 nights. It wasn't full but it seems most of the spots were taken even though it is the middle of the week and weather is still cold. The Park is actually right in town. There is a shopping area right across the street from the park. However, there is enough of a drive through the park to the campground area that you feel like you are away from the city. It reminds me of Catalina State Park in Tucson. We have a nice spot with lots of trees and green grass that Savannah loves.
Again we are by a lake but weather still is too cold. They also have nice bike/walk paths. Oh well next time will definitely be in the summer or early fall.
We did watch the second game of the Western Conference Finals. Sadly the Ducks lost. What a game though. It went to 3 overtimes, 5 hours of playtime. Both teams did great, especially the goal tenders.
The Ducks hit the goal post at least three times but the pucks didn't go in. It was just luck who would get it in and unfortunately it was Chicago. Both this series and the Eastern Conference Final series are gong to be close I think. We might even see one or both go to 7 games to decide the outcome.
Our next stop is Guernsey State Park in Wyoming. Stay tuned.
