8/5/21 – Colorado National Monument to Craig, CO

We are working our way North with Craig, CO our destination for the day. We need a shower and WiFi so we plan to stay at the KOA in Craig. It’s a shitty location (right next to US 40 going to Steamboat Springs) but shower and WiFi win out over noise. As a reward for making it down the monument, we saw same big horn sheep at the exit. 

After stopping for some groceries in Fruita, CO we get on our way. The rough road that was CO 139 was followed by CO 64 out of Rangely, CO which had big sweeping turns following the river and was freshly paved, Diane’s favorite road so far. All the gas stations in Meeker, CO were packed and traffic got really intense. After waiting 10 minutes to use the restroom (two big vans with kids got in before us) we continue on to Craig, CO. No dramatic scenery and except for that last stretch from Meeker, it was a good day’s ride.

P.S. I know the ‘Ute’ on the sign refers to the Ute Indians but it’s still a special name to me :-).
