From Prescott it took us seven plus hours to arrive at the KOA in Cortez. Amelia is enamored with the brothers that own KOA Cortez and they are enamored with her. It’s quite a little mutual admiration society. And why not, all three have the same personalities: friendly, always greeting people, waving, and smiling. The two brothers, Shawn and Bernie, run the best campground we’ve ever visited. I had no doubt they would remember Amelia.
While Amelia went to the office to see her guys and check in, I was walking Sara around. I just had the sense something was different. Amelia finally came out of the office with a disappointed look on her face. The brothers had just sold the campground; escrow had closed over Memorial Day weekend. We hope they got a bundle. They really did a terrific job building up the business. We miss them. Hopefully the new owners can maintain the high standards.
Phil’s World is our favorite mountain bike ride. I refer to it as singlespeed paradise. I could go on and on with flowery adjectives and probably bore all the non riders to death. Well, our favorite place just got better. They’ve added more trails! It’s a long haul from San Diego but we’ve got to figure out how to get a group of friends out here.
Up next uncharted territory! How exciting 🙂
