|Hole in the Wall Rest Area|
Also noted was that buying alcohol in Colorado is worse than Utah which has at least state liquor stores. Here in Cortez it is only small hole in the wall places with $$$ prices. I will pass. I should have bought my gin at the Washington Costco and just paid the bottle tax! Apparently New Mexico Costco's in Albuquerque do sell alcohol so I will wait to stock up then.
We arrived at Mesa Verde RV Resort by 2 pm after shopping for a while and having lunch downtown Cortez. Our home base for the next week. What a lovely park and they even have a small hot tub for Ray. Freya enjoys the dog area which is a huge pasture. Ray even managed to scare up 5 stags (bucks) so he will see if he can get pictures of them later on. We are looking forward to exploring the area before carrying on. This has has been on Ray's bucket list for the past 4 years.
