June 10-15, 2015:  The mountains on the way always make me smile, but once I got to Denver, smiling was not as easy. I planned a week in Denver for this part of the trip to Yellowstone, mainly because I had repairs to get made to Kismet (my motorhome).  That included a stop at Competition […]

They were so quick about fixing everything, I could have left on Friday, but I […]
