Cameron Pass

Yesterday we took a little tour. It was a rest day for us after 2.5 days of driving to get here. So we jumped in Rod and Deb’s car and headed up through Poudre Park to the little town of Walden in north central Colorado, then north into Wyoming for a look around before coming back to Fort Collins, where Rod and Deb’s son-in-law, Todd, had prepared a great pulled pork dinner for us. Only about 215 miles round trip. It was a beautiful albeit twisty drive up the canyon to Cameron Pass, 10,276 feet, and over the top to Walden. We certainly could get used to this kind of treatment having a driver and all our meals cooked for us.


A shot somewhere along the Cache la Poudre river heading up to Cameron Pass.


And a shot of Brenda standing near the river.


And here is a shot of our hosts just before the truck came around the corner….lol.


Now you would think we would have got enough snow pictures at home but this is proof that old man winter is relentless when it comes to following us.


Lunch at the River Rock Cafe in Walden, Colorado.


Along the road south from Laramie, Wyoming back to Fort Collins.

For those who are interested Meg and I are still getting our walks in although there is more leash time for Meg than we are used to. This was a picture of the sunrise yesterday as we walked around a fish pond here at the Fort Collins Lakeside KOA



  1. Always love your pictures. They are beautiful. Love seeing Brenda in flip flops in the snow!!
    You sure look like you are having some fun...

  2. Great pictures! We were in the area this summer and missed this. Next time.


  3. We have stayed at the KOA in Ft Collins on two different occasions. Once for almost a week! We really like the town and that CG. The first time we drove into the place along side all the abandoned machinery, we wondered what we were getting into, but all is well once you are on the CG property. The walk around the lake is especially nice! Have fun.

  4. The sunrise picture of the lake is just gorgeous. Breathtaking, actually. Thanks for sharing it.
