Remember that when you leave this Earth, you can take with you nothing that you have received, only what you have given, a full heart enriched by honest service, love, sacrifice and courage. -St. Francis of Assisi

Bayfield Colorado

I had asked for a few days off work.  Our work week is Thursday through Wednesday. I switched my normal days off so that I could be off work on October 4th. Even though my job is in the middle of switching to a new accounting program, they were understanding and let me change my schedule.

I ended up with Wednesday, Thursday and Friday off.

Not too many pictures, this wasn't a sightseeing or hiking excursion. I just wanted a few days to think about where I have been and where I am going.

My destination was Bayfield Riverside RV Park, a beautiful place. The owners really take pride in this park, very clean and well maintained with flowers blooming everywhere. They say "welcome to our backyard" (36 acres) and tell you to walk around and explore as much as you want. There is really good internet throughout the park and my cell phone had a strong signal.

It was an easy drive, Mesa Verde is on Hwy 160 and so it this park....just drive 53 miles east.

I found a quiet place near the river to set up my chair and spent many hours just sittin'....

listening to the water.......

and staring at the clouds.


  1. Looks like a nice place to just sit, and listen.

  2. Sounds like you've found a really nice place to kick back and collect your thoughts. Enjoy your mini vacation.

  3. Wonderful place. Sitting by the river is a great place to collect your thought and sort things through.

  4. Isn't it great to have the time to spend some time just enjoying the clouds! I hope you find peace in this get away.

  5. oh the special moments of a perfect get-a-way. Can't beat that!

  6. Once in a while, we all need time away from our normal routines.

  7. The sound of the water flowing over the rocks must have been wonderful. Hope you worked out your thoughts.

  8. Sounds like a wonderful few days off. I used to not be much for peace and quiet reflection, but I am now. I find it refreshing and important for my personal mental health.
