Dinner Station Campground

Tuesday, August 14

On Sunday we left the full-service Colorado Dream Ranch campground and headed up the Taylor River about 12 miles to Dinner Station Campground. It's a small but nice Forest Service campground on the river in the northern portion of Taylor Park. The location used to be a stagecoach stop back in the late 1800s.

Our site, #19, is on a loop that's out in the open and has a fabulous view of the Collegiate Peaks that ring Taylor Park.

We had this site for 3 days.

On Monday we drove up to Spring Creek Reservoir, about 12 miles, where Don fished all day and I read. I was able to sit outside for a while, but then the clouds moved in and I moved to the truck when it started to rain.

The mountain in the background that's making its own clouds is American Flag Peak.

Don was wearing waders and rain gear, so the rain didn't bother him at all.

When we got back to camp, the rain was clearing and we had a huge rainbow.

This morning we awoke to very low clouds--no more view.
