The 2009 Colorado Rally Prequel Part I

The first day I headed towards SE Oregon - this is some remote and little travelled territory. I picked a spot on the map that looked interesting - Cow Lakes Recreation area and Jordan Craters Geologic Area:
I could see Jordan Craters from the campground but there was no direct route between A and B. The next morning I had intended to drive to the craters but the maze of ranch roads got me turned around. I decided no time for this on this trip - another day.
On to Silver City, Idaho - a very remote mining town high in the remote mountains of SW Idaho:

There is more to the campground than can be seen in this pic. I didn't stay here as I had miles to kill so onward into northern Nevada. Leaving the mountains:

This was a good run but there were a lot of cows which means cow poo everywhere and I'm not a big fan of camping in poo so I don't know if this run would be at the top of my list to do again.

Kokopelli - I filled out the change of address card with the Post Office - if you wouldn't mind throwing my mail in a bag until I arrive I'd appreciate it!
My planned point farthest east was Trinidad so I headed that way and went south on Hwy 12 "The Higway of Legends". This is a great mountain drive in an area I had not been too before. The town of La Veta seemed really neat and the mountains in the area had a lot to see. Purgatoire Campground:
