Colorado National Monument

Today looked like the perfect day to head up the road a bit to the Colorado National Monument.  We had a forecast of 77° day which in Colorado is quite warm!

First stop – a late breakfast at Starvin Arvin’s locally here in town.  The RV park that we’re staying at gave us several 10% off coupons, one of which was for Arvin’s.  It was pretty good.  I tried their Hobo Breakfast which came out looking more like it was intended for a starving trucker.  I did my best 😀

Then we were off to the Colorado National Monument.  I know we won’t get to see it covered in snow like our friends Francie & Allan did several weeks ago, but it was stunning nonetheless.

This evening George convinced me that there might actually be BBQ in Colorado based on all the reviews he had read of Rib City here in town.  Well, I’ll be darned – it was great!  I took the waitress’ suggestion for the ribs & shrimp dinner while George stuck with a full rack of ribs.  We we both very surprised & very full when we left!
