Granby, CO (AIM Rally day 1)

We attended the AIM rally in Granby, CO. Near Estes Park, this location is known for summer and winter activities. It was a great place for AIM to hold their rally. It was held at River Run RV Resort, a huge new park that is still growing.

After arrival, we met up with the Cooks and the Phillips, and attended the AIM cocktail hour and dinner. Good to see all the face again and renew acquaintances.

Our first day activities were horseback riding or wagon ride to an old homestead. We decided not to go horseback to prevent sore body parts, not riding for years didn’t prepare us physically. So we did a much mores sedate wagon ride.

We ended the day with another get together and, of course, more food and drink.

Across the Mackinaw bridge

The Mackinaw Bridge is 5 miles long and 520 feet high, and connects the Michigan Upper Peninsula (UP) with the rest of Michigan.  It is subject to strong winds, and as such strikes fear in the hearts of big rig drivers.  Fortunately, we had almost no wind, and only traffic to contend with.

So now we are back in Michigan, and next week will have our Travelling Supremes rally.  Between now and then, some sightseeing, and fancy food, I’m sure….
