US Hwy 50 day seven

Today's drive was the most scenic so far.  We fueled up in Pueblo, CO with mountains in the distance, soon we were into the mountains.  First passing by the Royal Gorge and then the drive up through the Arkansas River canyon with lots of folks enjoying white water rafting.  Then it was up and over the Monarch pass at 11,300 feet and soon along the Blue Mesa reservoir and on to the Black Canyon of the Gunnison.  There was one other summit along the way at a little over 8,000 feet.

Tonight we are in the Grand Junction, CO KOA and will be here for two nights.  After the past three long days of driving, a day of rest will be welcome.  Our site has full hookups so I will take advantage of tomorrow to correct the tank situation following our flood.  I will dump both waste tanks and refill the fresh water.  When we leave here highway 50 follows I-70 through most of Utah.

We have now completed 2132 of the total 3131 miles

This is our day seven route 341 miles

and this is the combined days 1-7
