After lots more driving we finally hit
Finally we arrived at
We were both surprised as to how cold it still was. It started snowing while we were there and we learned that there was only one campground open. We suddenly realized that we had no place to stay! We checked with the personnel staff to see if we could rent a dorm room for the night until we figured out what to do. But sadly the answer was no.
After evaluating the situation and checking the forecast of upcoming snow and lows in the twenties, we headed for
That night we tried a local pizza place and it was better than MPC. (If you don’t know Memphis Pizza Café is our all time favorite pizza place.) We were surprised to find a place that had a better taste! When we got back to the hostel we hung out and shared adventure stories and plans. It was really awesome.
This morning we woke up and shared a big breakfast with all the other hostelers. It was fun to keep sharing stories and getting to know others. After breakfast we headed to check out some local thrift stores. It was neat to cruise around
The weather forecast put camping out of the picture. Cold we could probably handle but the wet, rainy cold would not be fun. So, we decided on a Hot Springs Resort nearby. We are currently sitting in a small library at this resort. The place is really nice. (and inexpensive!)
Josh and I are both so worn out from traveling and from the altitude. We jumped in the hot spring pool a little while ago and it felt nice. Now we are just chillin’. We don’t really have a plan for our next move yet. We have a few possibilities floating around. Just part of the adventure!
