The view across Route 24 from Snowy Peaks RV Park,
Buena Vista, Colorado
Last night the rain pounded our RV for hours; as much as we love the sound, we eventually thought enough already. It stopped around midnight, and Wednesday morning we were treated to bright sunshine. Outside our RV park and across Route 24 lies the Collegiate Range, with peaks named Princeton, Harvard, and the like. None named Boston University or Georgia Tech that I know of.
We drove our Saturn through Fairplay and on to Breckenridge and Frisco before heading back across a couple of 10,000-foot passes and through brief snow showers. Clouds had moved back in and made some of the mountain photography difficult—not that the clouds were all that low, but the contrast between the clouds and the snow was minimal.
Tomorrow we leave the Rockies. There are several ways out, but some look dicey. Our best bet is probably the Interstate.
