Change of plans ! This was to be the fourth year to go to Trujillo Meadows campground, and the third to manage it.

But, this year, however, we will be down in the Conejos River canyon at the Aspen Glade campground, managing it as we train to be the area manager for the following year. Here is a Google Earth look at Aspen Glade:


The straight line in the upper left corner is highway 17. The broad curved line at the bottom is the Conejos River of Trout fishing fame.

Our current area manager operates from the Aspen Glade campground, and will be training us, since he will retire after this Summer.

There are eight campgrounds in the area that range in elevation from 8400 feet to 10,000 feet. The nearest town to our campsite will be Antonito Colorado.

Here is a link to the company’s district page with a description.

Oscar wants to know if he can chase chipmunks there!!!?

Jim and Bobbie said...

That's great news!!! Jim and I will be happy to help you in any way we can. If you have any questions about the paperwork work just give us a call.

Are you going to Pueblo in April for the water certification class? Jim did that last year.

Brian and Sharon that is cool. The easiest way to apply is to use the link to the intertnet form and just click submit when it's complete. We look forward to seeing you guys there. It will be like a Padre Island National Seashore reunion !

Bobbie and Jim, they talked like they may wait till next year to send me to the water class in pueblo. Thanks for the offer of help with the paperwork, I am sure I'll be calling you guys up !

Congratulations and good luck on your new job. My parents are looking forward to hosting Conejos and Spectacle lake this year. If I remember correctly you'll have electricity at Aspen Glade, the solar panels can take a break.

Brian and Sharon Scofield said...

Okay Larry, I did it!
I just filled out the application with AL&L for next season!!!
Wish us luck and hopefully we will hear something!

When do you guys have to be there?
Hope it don't cut into your Jug Fest!

We will get there a bit early this year to start learning about each of the campgrounds start up procedures.
