We drove over to Telluride from Moab, intending to camp in the town park, and then spend a few days exploring the jeep trails in the area (to the extent possible in an Element). But town was packed with a Blues and Brews festival, so I headed off to this forest service campground above town. As soon as we go up there and selected the site, it rained for an hour. It cleared enough for supper, a rainbow, and short walk, and then was rainy and windy all night long.
The next day was also rainy, so I opted to stick to the paved highways. Latter I learned that we had hit the remnants of a tropical storm from Baja. The same rain had caused some flooding that blocked access to Burr Trail in the Powell Lake area.
Here is Lake Powell a few weeks ago!!! Boy did the wind blow the whole time we were there expect for the last day!!!!....We went through about 300' of rope just tieing down our tents!!! Good thing we bought extra tent stakes to hold us down!!! Overall...It was a great get-a-way!!!
I have since added 12V power, 120V power, an ARB Freezer fridge, on board propane and a couple other goodies that I need to finish installing in the trailer. Next on the list is an awning off the back? Possibly a rooftop tent?
