That was the arch two days ago. RV parking is under the bridge. You can just barely see the arch on the background

Looking good! (The coach is nice too. Looks like you're having a great time.) Smiler

Not too far from Estes Park and RM Nat park...

Hmm... looks like riverfront... (way too clean and safe for Detroit!) gotta go look at a map!

Best of luck on your journey, did you guys go up in the arch? The first time I realized that I am claustrophobic was in the little capsule you get into to go up. I freaked out I wouldn't let the automatic door shut, I bailed out, that thing was so small. Ha ha I bailed out on my wife!

Stay cool and enjoy, drive safe and post more pictures!

Made it through Rocky Mountain National Park. Had some issues with the Barth before entering the park. Not sure what, it was like the engine just stopped going. Never did, just intermittent power. Seems fine now. On our way to Flaming Gorge. Trying to post pictures, but all updates are with a smart phone and spotty coverage.

We made it to Yellowstone, Awesome! But not without problems. W replaced the alternator and thermostat in Jackson, WY. Went almost three days without brake Mithra and turn signals before I could trace the short. Now we are art a farm in Northern Wyoming on our way to the Badlands. Pictures to come. I think one it my favorite things is all the compliments we get door Miss B. Love taking the more scenic roads. Yellowstone Northeast entrance then the chief Joseph scenic highway is beautiful.

sounds like you're having a blast! You have found a few mechanical demons but you seem to be getting through them well.

The early GM alternators are pretty unreliable. I keep a spare one in the coach.

You and your family will have some wonderful memories of this trip! Hopefully more to come!

Thanks for sharing your trip. Cool

We made to mount Rushmore. Beautiful. The KOA was awesome. So much for our girls to do. Let's face it, i'm a big kid too. We are now in des Moines at a water park hotel. Home tomorrow. Best road trip ever.

I think one of the best parts of the trip is driving a35 year old Barth and all the fans you make on the way.
