The trip is from Lewis & Clark Monument, Illinois, to Kickapoo State Park, Illinois, by way of the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, Arizona

Colorado River State Park, Colorado

20 miles east of the state line we pulled off I-70 at Fruita and set up camp at Colorado River State Park.

The mountains of Colorado National Monument were in the background south of the Colorado River.

I hiked several miles along the river. Paved, level, and no snow, it was much easier than the last hike I had taken.

The bike trail I walked on detoured around then over a stream feeding into the river underneath I-70.

Then I had to retrace my steps back to the campground.

Back at the campground, I walked around a lake.

Where a flotilla was crossing.

That evening a storm blew up in the mountains across the river, which made it cool and windy, but we never got more that sprinkles.
