Silver Dollar - July

We camped at Silver Dollar near Turquoise Lake in mid-July 2014. Dede, Andy, and Lizzi drove up to camp with us. We were in site 37 which was OK. The best site to reserve is 40.


A short hike takes you to Turquoise Lake at 10,000 feet.


Beautiful water in a beautiful surrounding.


Lizzi could not control herself. She had to jump in the cold water and mess around despite not have a swimming suit or towel.


There is "dare me and I will probably do it" Lizzi.

Super cool picture of Lizzi with snowy mountains in the background. 


Like most cats, if there is an elevated platform to be on, Lizzi is on it.


We took a hike on the path around the lake to the dam.


Having some lunch at the campsite.


Dede and Andy enjoying the perfect weather.

Kathy cooking pancakes for breakfast.


Lizzi, still smelling like fish water, hugs her Aunt Mona.


Andy taking a break in the camper.


Lizzi flashes peace, bro.


Randy used the outside kitchen to cook up some bacon.


For dinner we needed the grill so Randy set it up.


We ate some really tasty Tony's rib-eye steaks.


It was an excellent dinner suggested by Lizzi complete with steak, corn on the cob, and twice-baked sweet potatoes. Missed a vegetable but we survived.


We explored Leadville and then took a break for some coffee and ice cream.


Lizzi ordered some weird birthday cake-flavored ice cream.

While browsing through the thrift store, Lizzi tried on a pair of pre-owned panties costing $1.


Andy almost attended Colorado Mountain College. Dede figured he would spend more time skiing than studying.
