Rocky Mountains and the Frozen Dead Guy

10/27/21 We arrived in Colorado early in the afternoon and thank goodness for that as it took us some time to find a campsite after the road to the place we had picked out was closed. They didn’t provide a place to turn around at the road closure so we had to back up for about a quarter mile until we reached a spot to turn around.

They finally agreed to listen to us and…

It turned out the we didn't have my scooter strapped to the back well enough so we added some straps and now she's not budging. Luckily, it did not fall off completely and just has a little ding on one wheel where it scraped. Our first night was spent with a Boondockers Welcome host in Hilton, NY. He warned us on the way in not to take the parkway due to low…
