We stayed for 7 days at Twin Lakes RV resort. Sure is beautiful. We had deer come into camp every evening. When Gary was outside during their visit, one doe would come within 6 feet of him. Gary fished every day, even the day it rained. He released most of the ones he caught but we did have fish for dinner two nights. One day the wind blew and I thought it was going to blow the motorhome over. Good thing we have it loaded with lots of stuff to make it too heavy for the wind to blow over. We woke up one morning to discover that it had snowed in the mountains around us. Sure was beautiful. We will be leaving here and headed north up 395.

Our time in Vegas was short but full of things to do. We spent two days on the strip, but were not able to see all of the Casinos. We were able to see the free shows at the Billagagio, Treasure Island, and the Mirage. We walked into numerous casinos and were so busy looking at things, we did not have time to gambe. One of the things that kept Gary from gambling was the fact that most of the slot machines did not have a coin receptical, one had to put in bills or tickets. We were able to see two shows, the first was a show which featured The Coasters, Platters, and Drifters. Great show!!!! The second show was called the Legends which featured look-a-likes for Buddy Holly, Maddona, Bruce Springsting, Aretha Franklin, the Temptations, and of course Elvis. An okay show but not as good as the first. I figured out that the best way to see Vegas is to swim at the motel or RV park during the morning, early afternoon, and then go out at night. We also saw some of the free shows. We found a great place to park at O'Sheas. From there we were able to walk to quite a few of the Casinos. We are currently on our way to June Lake to do some fishing.
We stayed at the Blue Mesa Recreational Ranch in Gunnison, Co. Gary got to fish for 5 days and was able to catch his limit every day. I got to take some water aerobic classes while Gary was out fishing. We met our friends Jack and Terri Watters. They taught us a game called "Jokers and Pegs". We were able to play the game three nighs. The girls won two out of the three nights. While we were at Blue Mesa, we took a drive to Black Canyon of the Gunnison River National Park. It was raining the day we went, so we did not get to walk out on all the overlooks. They have a campground there and hopefully, we will be able to visit again.
