Day 9-Paonia to Echo Park, CO 213 miles

As Ralf and I head towards Seattle we discover art in Carbondale-

Here we are pretty much at the top of a pass north of Riffle, CO and about 20 miles away from a paved road. My oil and check engine lights have come on again. Turns out gravel and dirt were getting thrown up and jamming the cool fan. A couple minutes sticking my fingers in to turn it frees things up and we are good to go. This act would be repeated every couple days on the way home-

More aspen trees after the fan-

Is this an omen for our campsite?-

I never figured out if Ralf thinks I am #1 or I should be looking up-

No worries about a wildfire at the camp. The road goes way off to the left-

Beautiful drive/road down to the junction of the Yampa and Green Rivers at Echo Park-

The campground is just ahead with a view of the river and the big rock face-

Scenic place and two years ago I walked for hours along the river but this year the bugs were horrible. We only made it about 15 minutes before being eaten alive then heading back to camp. Horseflies left my legs bleeding-

RBMann- The road is his workshop, and his trips are opportunities to do much needed repairs. -Bill S.
