|Main St. Trinidad, CO.|
|Colorful old homes overlooking downtown.|
|Like any historic town there are quite a few old houses that need some (or a lot of) TLC.|
This one has a fine view of town.
|There is a paved river walking trail for several miles along the Purgatoire River through town.|
We only walked about a quarter mile of it so we don't know if all of it is this pretty.
Colorado is one of those states that charges a DAILY park entrance fee on top of the nightly camping fee so we decided to buy the annual state park pass and spend all of our nights in Colorado at state parks.
Trinidad Lake State Park has six full hook up sites and 57 electric only sites. Roads are paved, some sites are paved, some are gravel. All sites have a picnic table and fire ring. The restroom facility looks new and has coin operated showers. There is a small, inexpensive laundry room. We had good Verizon signal. There are several miles of trails from the campground.
We had full hook up site #3, which was fine, but did back up to the entrance road and visitor center. Site #6 is the best full hook up site. Some of the electric only sites are spectacular, with excellent privacy and views of the lake (such as #45, 46, 47). Quite a few of the sites have a bit of slope to them. At this time of year, along with the threat of rain, the park was less than one third full and very peaceful.

|We walked the South Shore Trail one morning and came upon a herd of elk!|
Here, they have seen us and are starting to freak out and head back into the hills.
|There were at least 25 of them!|
|Making a run for the hills...|
|This was as close as we got!|
|Lots of room for Rosie to explore, the next site was some distance beyond the trees.|
Black and White Photo Challenge Day Five. I've made it to the last day of the challenge! I realize I forgot to invite another blogger to the challenge on a couple of the days, but I definitely had fun going through my old photos and finding ones that would pop in black and white.
Today's shot is of a very happy Hans and Lisa at Ouray Brewing Company in June 2013.

The only rules of the challenge are:
