Colorado,

    As we mentioned, we ended up camp hosting in a semi-remote National Forest, the San Juans in southern Colorado, this past summer.  It was a ton of hard work, it was amazing in its beauty, and we got pretty good at the whole thing. 

  • jacoatrio102017Well, I gotta tell you, it's hard to argue with spending the summer in southern Colorado!  Even though we were far out of range of all of the internet, all of the television, all of the cell phone ranges (well, sometimes a bird would flyover....) we had a fine time. So here we are and Jaco's chillaxin right next to the Rio Grand.  This is the lovely Riverside area of the Caballo Dam Campgrounds, part of Caballo Lake State Park.  There was a Chilli Challenge going on so we were forced to boondock and it was quite nice!

  • Trinidad Lake is a wonderful place to escape the crowds and establish a basecamp from which to explore the great outdoors. Miles of trails winding through ancient and interesting local history, and spectacular scenery provide visitors and nature enthusiasts with great outdoor exploration opportunities.

After camp hosting at camps located between Pagosa Springs and Durango, I admit to being addicted to KSUT our local public broadcasting station.  I developed favorites among the on air personalities.  We hadn't had radio in months, so this was pretty amazing.  The station's programs and music were the perfect balance of local and national with a terrific focus on Colorado musicians.
