While we were traveling, several external thing affected our schedule. We had originally planned to stop in Kansas City, MO to see friends and hit a few places we missed on our last time through. While we were in Texas a few nasty tornados occurred near areas we had planned to be and word was they were going to continue. Bill and I sat down to discuss our options and decided since our home is very “liftable” we should try and move on so we didn’t end up in a tough situation. Many RV parks do not have shelters and many are nowhere near a shelter apparently and this did not make me comfortable. Upon leaving Dallas we sat down to decide which way to head. We looked at the forecast and decided we had a big enough window between storms to head north and see a few things in Oklahoma and Kansas before moving on to Denver but now we were a solid six days ahead of schedule.
As we headed into Denver we found that many of the state parks were well booked for the weekends but had room for the weekdays. We arrived and stayed at the Cherry Creek State Park in Denver, which is fantastic. It is very centrally located which worked great. We then moved to another park for the weekend that ended up being next to a beautiful running/biking trail that was perfect for us.
We had a list of things we wanted to see and do in Denver and so the extra days worked out great.
One of my running friends, Heather, also lives in Denver and so we had plans to hang out and meet with a few others from our Disney group. Heather is a foodie and so she gave me a list of places we should eat and every one of her suggestions was a hit.
