We headed west from the great sand dunes, but our first stop was a new mattress!! Some how my side of the sleep # bed popped!!, we couldn't fix it, had to replace it, stopped at a mattress store bfor we left town!! Leaving that part of Colorado, we continued west up into the mts., we weren't sure if the rv would make it, we got to an elevation of 10,000 ft! The view was incredible, snow still on the mts, especially at the wolf creek ski area, no skiing, but still a lot of groundcover! The descent down was a little scary, a couple hair pin turns and not enough guard rails for my comfort!! But the view!!, so beautiful!! Did a drive by viewing of Chimney Rock, then continued on to the town of Cortez, CO, surrounded by mesas and cliffs, in every direction. We are visiting Mesa verde nat'l park tomorrow!!
