August 1-2, 2010, Buena Vista, CO
We drove to Buena Vista and stayed at the Mt. Princeton RV Park for 2 nights. Sunday afternoon we spent doing laundry. On Monday we drove to St. Elmo which is much more commercial since we were there last. From St. Elmo we took a really rough 4WD road over Tin Cup Pass. It started raining just as we got to the pass so we left the dogs in the Jeep and got a quick picture.
We drove down the other side of Tin Cup Pass to Mirror Lake.
We then drove through the old mining town of Tin Cup which now has a lot of summer homes.
We liked this sign – which was on our way out of town.
From Tin Cup we drove to Taylor Park Reservoir and then on a 2WD road over Cottonwood Pass.
This is looking down the other side of Cottonwood Pass.
It rained both days we were in Buena Vista which kept the temperature cool. We are now heading to the Front Range where we know it will be hotter.
