Settling In

After crossing into Mountain Time yesterday, we changed the clocks in the motor home, but it will take a few days for our body clocks to catch up. As a result, we were awake pretty early this morning. We got on the road a little before 8:30 and climbed Raton Pass with no trouble:
At the summit, we crossed the state line into Colorado:

Then headed down the pass:

It wasn't long before we saw "our" mountain, Pikes Peak:

And pulled into the KOA at Fountain before noon.
Shortly after we got here and started setting up, our friend, Gary and his son, Loy, came by with several bags of food; chicken, salads, rolls, and a pie! We tried to convince them to stay and share it with us, but they'd just had a late breakfast. We visited for awhile, then they went on their way and we finished the setting up. Thanks so much for the great meal, guys!
Then it was time for us to get ready to go to my sister, Ann's church for a dinner. This was the annual women's group Spring Banquet. The men's group prepares and serves the meal to the women's group. It was very enjoyable, with great food and fellowship. Yes, Jim did get to go along, but in order to get his meal, he had to help serve.
We are getting all set for a busy month here, looks like it's already well underway.

Glad you got "home" safely! Enjoy time with the family. BTW, we did like GoG Campground. It was very well maintained and the pull-thrus are nice! Just an FYI. :)

Take care!
