Rocky Mountain National Park Colorado

Rocky Mountain National Park (RMNP) is located in Estes Park, Colorado about an hours’ drive north of Denver. The park is supposedly the third most visited national park in the country with a bit more than 4.5 million visitors per year. OUCH!

Quebec Canada

We made it to Quebec! We drove from Edmunston, New Brunswick to Quebec City passing through beautiful countryside along the St. Lawrence River and even passed an Accordion Museum. I wasn’t allowed to stop…something about not wanting to hear someone try and learn the accordion all the way across the country. Just nonsense!   We headed to the KOA Quebec …

Our plans had us going to the Gaspe Peninsula in Quebec for 5 days and staying at Forillon National Park and driving almost 800 km.
