Lauren is driving us out of the packed Down Town Denver streets…first time driving the RV!  We are more than a little excited…and ready for our first adventure in the RV.  Santa Fe Skies RV park is our first stop!

The three of us leaving Denver on our first RV trip to Santa Fe and then Sedona
Beaded and ready for the Santa Fe and Sedona Experience

Santa Fe Skies RV park.  We stayed here for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.  I think we watched Titanic and cried  lol.  It was a bit chilly and windy at night, but the desert landscape was raw and beautiful, especially at sunset.  The owner makes his own sculptures and spreads them throughout the park.  The one pictured below was right next to us and has been a popular pic on google.

After Santa Fe for Christmas, we started making our way to Sedona, but made a pit stop in Meteor Crater outside Flagstaff for the night. 

Sedona!  We finally made it!  I thought I was going to break the RV AND the truck getting to this boondocking (off grid, no electric, no water) location that Lauren “found” online. The isolation and the views were so worth it!

After Sedona, we went back to Santa Fe Skies RV park before heading home to good ol Denver, CO.  This trip definitely confirmed for us that this is the life we want to live, tiny travel house style.  Until we can do it full time though, we are taking every chance we get to explore CO too.  Next trip was to Bear Creek and Chatfield Reservoirs for several weeks in the summer of 2018 where we could be close to Lauren’s camp for special needs kiddos – Camp Paha in Lakewood, CO

After Camp Paha, we decided to make our first RV trip to Lake Powell and Back!  We had two weeks to get as much in as possible before Lauren started school again. 

We stayed so many places on the way there and back!  In order:  Ballard RV Park in Thompson, UT.  Lone Rock on the edge of a bluff –  Big Water, Lake Powell, UT.   Sand Island Campground in Bluff, UT.  Vallecito, Durango, CO.  Dillon Reservoir, Summit County, CO.  

We were jonesing to get back out on the road again after being home from the last adventure, so we decided to try out Horse Tooth Reservoir  and Carter Lake near Ft. Collins, for two separate weekends before the RV summer camping season was over for us.  Excited to visit both these Reservoir’s next summer for some extended time.  

We have started planning our next adventure for Lauren’s Christmas break.  We get two and a half weeks this year!  Hoping to meet up with her sister Jordan and her family while in AZ again. Lake Mead and Havasu are in the mix and maybe a return to Sedona and Santa Fe on the way back?  We will see where the winds lead us on the next adventure!
