After arriving we set up in the same site as last year, we kind of like the neighborhood, it is were we are surrounded by old friends and met a lot of new ones this year.
The fun began right away, with Jerry and Debbie Pointer and the boys arriving the day before us. Janice loved to play with the furry kids, Buddy and Bo. Others had also arrived on opening day, such as Dana and Martha Moses, Gary and Kathy Wallace, Roger and Loretta Whitton, These names should look familiar, we tend to spend a lot of time with these good people.
Now before going any further, a note for pet owners. We learned the hard way this year, that high altitude can create serious health effects on pets, especially older pets that have underlying health conditions, know or unknown. Our furry kid, Sweet Pea, the cat from hell, did not survive the high altitude this year and died in June. Be very careful when travelling to altitudes with your pet, we found out the hard way, and found out that several other pets have pasted away in recent years. She was 15 years old and was full of energy and in apparent good health. We miss her a lot, everyday.
Rest in Peace, Little One
The summer progressed much, like normal, for Fun Valley, which is unlike any RV park we have stayed at. From fishing, to barbeques, to line dancing (Janice and Debbie), golf, site seeing, to relaxing with friends, under the awnings, and jam session by numerous musicians. Visiting with friends, to numerous to name here.

This summer was special, we had one of our grandson, Brayden, get to spend some time with us, thanks to Patty and Mark (his other grandparents) from Roswell, bringing him up. He got a chance to do some fishing, bike riding, made a new friend or two, played putt putt golf, and spent the night.
Not a bad day at the lake.

The summer pasted way to fast, and the park closed on September 17, and we left good friends, but we will see them latter in the year. We stayed in South Fork at a new park, Peacock Meadows RV Park. The leaves are changing and we decided to stay in the cool country for awhile longer to watch the colors.
The Park has 57 spaces, 50amp, full hookup. Once the grass is established, I think this will be one of the nicest parks in the area. The park is located just east of town and on the Rio Grande River, which means some great fishing really close.
This 16 1/2 inch Cut Throat Trout is a good example of the fishing, I found in the river.
Well, that's about it for now, we will be leaving South Fork, Saturday, and John and Janice's RV Adventures will continue. I will try to keep the blog updated in the future, but a good wifi signal is necessary for the computer work involved. So until next time, Travel Safe.
