We had a wonderful time with our Colorado friends and Brewer and Shipley, but the road was calling and we knew we had to go. We set off from Colorado Springs and headed up I25 to Fort Collins, then HW14 over to 287 into Wyoming up to Laramie. From Laramie we took the 287 loop up through Medicine Bow.
Remember when Butch Cassidy and the Sun Dance Kid blew up that money train? Well, this is the same place as the dinosaur graveyard and curio shop!
Popo Agie was our first starry night in the Vistabule.
The Sink Creek Campground near Landon, Wyoming provided a small but beautiful site right on a noisy little river!
Our new friends Maggie and Susan with their LittleGuy Teardrop!
In between Old Faithful eruptions we walked the board walk and saw many wonderful vistas.
Here is Jeff and Corrine in front of the future home of Vistabule West! Actually, their home due to break ground soon. On Jumping Rainbow Way! Such a beautiful place!
In partnership with SunFlare Vistabules now have the option of having thin, flexible solar collectors on the roof! We've got them on our trailer and they're working well. Take a look!
Let's be part of the energy solution.
It's nice to be liberated from the grid!
Drove into the mountains to Estes Park to hear a Brewer and Shipley concert at the Historic Park Theater. Had a wonderful lunch in the theater's cafe before the concert, the food was excellent as was the service.
Brewer and Shipley are a wonderful duo we first learned about in our younger days. We've followed them for ever since. We are very happy to celebrate 50 years of their music, and didn't want to miss the chance to see them as they toured Colorado.
The first concert was high in the Colorado Mountains of Estes Park. Their songs are impactful and beautiful. They sound as good now as they did when they first started out. Super impressive. We had a wonderful time hearing one of our favorite bands with our friends from Colorado and British Columbia who met us for the shows.
Brewer and Shipley at the Swallow Hill Concert Hall in Denver, and then at Stargazers in Colorado Springs. All three shows were fantastic!
Tom Shipley taught videography at a college in Missouri; one of his projects was documenting the travels of a solar car from the Southwest to Canada. He was impressed with the solar panels on the top of the Vistabule.
Brewer and Shiply in the Vistabule! It was a treat to stay in the same timber lodge cabins as Tom and Mike. Very gracious and talented guys.
