The year is winding down and it won’t be long until our new little one makes his or her entrance into the world. We wanted to get one last adventure in before settling down to nest for a few months as we welcome our new member into the family.
New Mexico, nicknamed Land of Enchantment for its scenic beauty and colorful history, was our destination. After exploring Taos and Los Alamos, we headed over to Santa Fe.
It’s safe to say fall is on the way out and winter is just around the corner. Most of the leaves have disappeared and the weather hasn’t been able to make up it’s mind. One day we will be wearing t-shirts and then the next day we are bundled in warm coats and gloves!
There is nothing like setting up your home with a backyard that includes mountains or rivers. You just can’t beat bringing along your home on wheels to experience our country’s natural beauty and explore the endless cultural opportunities. Some people take “there’s no place like home” a step further and remodel their RVs to fit their unique personalities and interests, just like any brick and mortar home.
Check out these five gorgeous fifth wheel remodels.
Chelsie and Ryan
Chelsie & Ryan are 20-something newlyweds who travel the US in their renovated camper with their fluffy goldendoodle puppy. They speak for their company Trades of Hope, while photographing their travels along the way. They love waking up in the woods, watching Parks & Rec together, and coffee shop hopping in each city they visit. Their RV remodel is light, bright, and open with pops of color and whimsical touches.
According to locals this has been an unusual Colorado fall. Warmer temperatures stayed through late October and the leaves hung around a bit longer on the trees. One woman even told me she can’t remember the last time she wore shorts in October. We soaked in all the sunshine and color as we explored southern Colorado.
Up in the mountains, not too far from Salida, is a gorgeous campground nestled among the mountains and along the Arkansas River called Helca Junction. It’s a primitive campground without amenities but who needs amenities when you got gorgeous views and your own bed, kitchen, and bathroom, in the RV. 😉
The Arkansas River Headwaters Recreation area is one of the most popular white water rafting and kayaking locations in the United States. The season appeared to be over for water sport but we still dipped our toes in….BRRRRRRRRRRRR!!!!
