On The Road To Colorado State Forest Campground

We had pretty much killed the whole day exploring Arches NP, and the sun was setting by the time we hit the road East. It was also darkening a bit because a thunderstorm was rolling in. As we rolled down the highway from Moab to the Colorado state line, we watched the lightning flashes behind us as the storm moved closer. Tyler was filming out the back window and got some good shots of lightning strikes. It only rained on us briefly, most of the storm was contained to the West, and we were moving East. By the time we reached Colorado, the last of the setting sun was visible again. Dawn was excited to be back in Colorado, she had been stationed here when she was in the Air Force. She was driving, and determined to get us as close to Rocky Mountain National Park as she could.
We were trying to find a campground in the area, but not having much luck, despite having both Woodalls Campground Directory and a KOA Directory. There were a few RV parks around, but none that allowed tenting. We decided to head for a campground listed in the Colorado State Forest that was on our way... the sites would be primitive, no amenities or showers, but we just needed a place to sleep at that point! It was well after midnight when we got to the camp.
