South Fork, Buena Vista


After the July 4th rally Romola and I drove to South Fork. It’s quite a climb over Wolf Creek Pass, we were down to 32 mph up hill. In South Fork, our RV site was right on the river, where we watched fly fishermen, birds, and amazing sunsets. We also stopped at the Grande Premium Meats, a store specializing in wild game meat and bought some elk, bison and venison.

A few days rest, and we drove to Buena Vista. We had dinner at Quincy’s, a favorite for filets and prime rib meals. And enjoyed several hikes up to the abandoned railway, originally used to transport mining goods to town. BV has quite an extensive network of hiking, biking, equestrian and Jeep trails. However, there was quite a bit of damage visible from the recent heavy rains and resulting landslides.

    Glad your enjoying your trip. Wish we could have gotten together, glad we didn’t go, had to rush Biff to emergency, sad to say he has prostrate cancer, did a bone density test yesterday, has an appointment at the cancer center next Monday and the doctors will have a plan for treatment. Will keep in touch.
