We had a nice reunion with old friends Bubba and LouAnn at Priest Gulch Campground near Dolores, Colorado:
Here are our rigs, parked right on the bank of the Dolores River:
This is a very peaceful wooded setting at about 8,000 ft. above sea level, so it is a nice cool place to escape the Texas heat in the summertime. Since we were there in late September, there was already quite a chill in the air, with the temperature getting down to around 25 degrees one night while we were here. What we were really interested in seeing was the fall color in the mountains, and that did not disappoint. Take a look at these photos:

We are headed south from here, returning to our Livingston, Texas address of record to take care of some auto registration and driver's license renewals. Then we will continue to Conroe, where we will be in and out for the next few months. We are going to miss the Colorado mountains and our friends, for sure.
Thank you, Lord, for this wonderful life; please forgive me if I don't appreciate it enough each day.
