Collegiate Peaks


Buena Vista, Colorado

August 25,2009

Our route today from Estes Park to Buena Vista took us over three scenic byways: the peak to peak, top of the rockies and the collegiate peak scenic byways.  It was a challenging mountain drive in the RV but Brad seemed to have a smile on his face the entire way.  The scenery was truly amazing in all directions.   The sky also delivered a dose of rain, hail and SNOW.

This is the view from our campsite in Buena Vista.  It is the highest of the Collegiate Peaks, Mt Princeton.  It is 14,000+ in elevation.  Our campsite is at 8,053 feet!  We plan to do some jeeping up to Tin Cup an old ghost town that used to be a mining meca.
