We reluctantly left Gunnison Monday morning and headed east over Monarch Pass, through Colorado Springs and north just a bit to the town of Monument for a short and not-so-sweet appointment with an RV technician. We needed some time to figure out our next step, so we checked into a park we'd been curious about: Jellystone Park in Larkspur. With family in nearby Castle Rock, we've wondered if this very kid-friendly place could be a regular stop for us.
Well, we wonder no more! This site has been our home for the last two nights. It's spartan, unlevel and dirty. The voltage gets so low it's scary. And, forget about anything that resembles the advertised free wifi. We can see (and hear) busy I-25, which is a stone's throw away. The only thing that buffers the hum of the interstate traffic is the freight train that rolls between the park and the freeway.
All this is ours for 60 bucks a night!
After finding the geocache, we peered inside the windows for a look back in history. Now, this is roughing it!
With 11 days until our next service appointment north of here, we're leaving Yogi, Boo Boo and our less-than-favorite park in the morning for somewhere more scenic and fun.
