We filled up with propane before hooking the car on then said goodbye to our great hosts. They said they enjoyed having us and we certainly enjoyed their company. That was a fun five weeks! I didn't think we'd be there more than a couple weeks when it was in the planning stages.
We headed south on 50 then took Highway 141 and were on the road an hour and twenty minutes when noon rolled around and I knew of a nice lunch spot to stop at. After lunch while Aileen had a nap, I wandered about with my camera. Once we got to Gateway there were several photo stops along the way. It isn't easy finding a pull off spot when you're 56 feet long.
We are in Naturita, Colorado tonight plugged in at an RV park since it is 5400 feet and going to be cold in the morning.

It was raining when we started to play cards on Friday night. Then it froze. Later, when we came out of the house to go to the motorhome, it was snowing well. Next morning we had a little over two inches of the white stuff. I shovelled the driveway for my exercise and it was a sheet of ice under the snow.
We did some shopping this morning then met with some of our friends for a final meal out. We plan to head down the road tomorrow morning. Our current "loose" plan is to head down through western New Mexico then into south eastern Arizona. We'll see where we end up.
We've sure enjoyed our five weeks here in the Clifton/Grand Junction area with great friends. We've had many card games and shared meals and had lots of laughter. Now we'll head back to our quiet existence, exploring the world with the two of us in the motorhome.

The weather is getting progressively cooler so it is time we headed down to warmer areas. One of the reasons we were here longer was on my birthday our hot water tank sprang a leak so we were without hot running water for over two weeks. Of course our tank was long since discontinued so an alternative had to be bought then we had to wait for a mobile tech to install it. n The dealer was booking mid December! I had thought about attempting the repair and am glad I didn't after watching the repairman struggling to retrofit the different water tank. Our old tank was fifteen years old and we used it full time for over eleven of those years including with the nasty Arizona water.
We continue to enjoy our friends here in Clifton and Grand Junction and I've been exploring new country and looking for geocaches. Our friends would like us to stay longer but there are places I would like to visit before the weather gets too cold. We're targeting next Monday as our departure date. Tomorrow is the American Thanksgiving and we will celebrate it with our hosts, Jim and Judy. The rest of our friends will be with family tomorrow.
