Back In Evergreen

I just spent the week back up in Evergreen/Genesee Colorado cat sitting for Pat, the overly generous guy who offered up his second home for Adrienne, then the two of us before we moved to Montrose. While I was back in Evergreen I was initially expecting to have a few small jobs lined up to do but they both fell through. So instead I ended up wandering around and exploring a little bit, relaxed, and visited Neil up in Fort Collins.

Here is a car that resembles KITT the talking car from the hit 80's TV series Knight Rider.  Oh, and the significance is that Neil loved this car, and the show.

Here is a crazy house built up on the hill in Genesee.  It looks like something from The Jetsons.

One of the first days back in town I headed to the grocery store in Evergreen on the CT-90 and tried to take a new route that avoided highways—It was a blast. I wandered all through Genesee and into Genesee Park (which I didn’t know existed) on a dirt road, perfect for the CT-90, that wandered all though the woods and up and down mountain passes. Here is a view from one of the overlooks where the road parallels highway 70 down below. While trying to find where this road is supposed to meet up with a road that passes over or under the highway to link-up behind the grocery store, I stumbled upon this amazing building at the end of an unpaved cul-de-sac. So cool!

While up in Fort Collins, Neil and I had some adventures, as always, and wandered around the city for the night. The following day I bought myself a really decent mountain bike at the salvation army for only $19. You can’t beat that kind of deal…accept for all the freebies that I find all the time (usually not quite this nice though). On my way back to Montrose at the end of the week, I picked up a new used Coleman air conditioning unit for the RV. Who knows how old the darn thing was, but when I plugged it in and the low pressure line got so cold that it chilled me to the bone, I knew there was nothing to haggle on and gave the man his $200 and went on my way. Here are a few photos from the drive before the sun went below the horizon.
