Grand Junction, Colorado trip!! – 2013 – Part 1

First of all I can’t believe that the trip dad and I took to Grand Junction, CO was almost 2 years ago! But I also can’t believe that this is how far behind I am on this blog! It’s so frustrating, where does the time go?! Anyways, let’s hope I can even remember what these pictures are from!!!!

While driving there dad and I stopped at a KOA campground in Nebraska, it was where my parents had stayed once before and my dad really wanted to go again. Dad and I found a birds nest at the campground.

You had to take a thing to get up to the top, and then the rides were hanging off the mountain, and going up the side! It was seriously the coolest thing ever!!

We arrived in Grand Junction and set up our RV in my brother’s yard. The next day we went up to where the chipmunks are. Randy & Amanda had taken Darrell and I there a few years earlier to feed the chipmunks and it was so much fun, I really wanted my dad to experience it.
