Yep, it's wash day. No traveler's favorite chore - second only to dumping the holding tanks. However, Southside Laundry in Montrose is such a nice laundromat, the washing, drying, waiting, and folding seem less onerous. Not to mention, friendly employees, a nice waiting area, and lightening-fast wi-fi. In addition, it's a good day for chores with the intermittent showers we are getting.

Jeanne and I spent last night at Camp Wal-Mart. Just goes to show - there is beauty everywhere if you just look!
The back of one of our RV neighbors cracked me up. It's so true - especially in these parts.
The plan for later today is to search for nearby dispersed camping spots. Though I'm still waiting for the temperatures to drop (significantly) around Arches National Park, at least I'll be able to visit the Black Canyon of the Gunnison while here.
But I'm getting ahead of events. Back to yesterday.
Crossing Monarch Pass at 11,000+ feet was just plain gorgeous, as always. I was absolutely shocked though to see that the Aspen leaves have all gone yellow. Jim, Gayle, and I were just here 5 days ago and everything was still green. The locals say when the Aspens turn, it can snow anytime.
I've got more Salida photos, which I will post in good time, but I don't like being too far behind in location for the folks back home. It's been busy, what with the travel day yesterday and plenty of grading to do.
