Porky Sees Carbondale
Today was a very interesting drive. We drove from Estes Park to Carbondale and I could feel the tension in the air as my parents tried to navigate the highway. Apparently there were speed bumps on it. I couldn’t see the road to verify, but I could definitely feel bumps, and I wasn’t able to take a nap like normal.
I wasn’t allowed in the camper for a while as it seemed all of our spices had spilled during the drive. I can still smell the chili powder in the air as I write this. Our poor vacuum will never be the same.
But Carbondale was very relaxing for me. They had a dog park, so FINALLY I didn’t have to walk my humans around like I always do. I could get a little ME time, and boy did I need it after being cooped up with Charlie and the humans for two weeks. The dog park had an excellent view, and I made it out there for sunset every night.
We also got to see a river that was just down the road from our campsite. Charlie drank some of the water, but I didn’t want to risk getting ill at my old age.
I am not sure what my parents did during the day, but they left us for several hours one time and came back talking about Penny Hot Springs – they smelled amazing – just like rotten eggs. But before I could figure out where the buffet was, they had showered and the trail ran cold.
