"I like to welcome the show Sam and Nina. . Oppenheim Sam you may remember from being on the show way back you can find Samsa Tiger fee at Sam Oppenheim, , dot com Sam and Nina welcome to the show. . Thank you for having a Song Chris to care and I say Sam has been on the show in a while we figure it's something like ten years of marriage in two kids later that SAM is back. . In the early years talking about Bali and northern India and Laos I believe if I am. . Correctly, , but you're talking something a little more domestic this time. . What are we talking about today? ? So mostly the national parks in northern Colorado I figured because of Covid we did a little domestic travel and there's some amazing sites at their dinosaur, , national? ? Monument. Doesn't . get enough attention and Rocky Mountain National Park among a lot of people's favorites excellent and you did this as part of a larger RV trip this year. . Correct. . So we did our first ever family RV trip and we all four corners, , Arizona Utah Colorado? ? New Mexico but <hes> what we covered has been covered by your show before like the route sixty six stuff in New Mexico and Arizona we did that and you recently had a podcast about the <hes> national parks in Arizona. . Offer beaten past beyond the Grand Canyon so we don't want to repeat anything It's getting tougher. . So we do repeat some things these days. In . fact, , I'm going to try and repeat the show we did allows Laos coming up here sometime I'm just looking for a guest. . So let's focus in on Colorado which I think we decided was about a week long portion of your trip yes and you doing this by RV right excellent and where should we start if you're GONNA? Do ? it just all on its own as a one week one way road trip you could fly into Salt Lake City and fly out of like older Denver area. . But I'm not GonNa Really. .

So we're up in the north western corner of Colorado when we're in dinosaur national monument correct it's most of the monument is now in Colorado but the part with the dinosaur quarry is in Utah and it's one of those parks that stretches across the border and it's Absolutely. . Incredible. . It's actually two hundred, , ten, , thousand acres and includes two river canyons both the green and Yamba River canyons and so some people think Oh, , it's a national monument. .

It's just going to be a better trip I'm talking this cold tour that we're going to be doing here is more of an outdoorsy type of tourism, , and so I think if you word of a reserve, , the campground at either Split Mountain or Green River on the Utah side of. . Dinosaur. . National Monument. . You would then be inside the park. . It's a beautiful campground right on a quiet stretch of the Green River, , and all these campgrounds can be reserved on recreation dot Gov, , and you could do it with an RV and could do it with a tent. . But if you wanted to stay outside there are places you can stay in Jensen Utah which is kind of the border town for the national. .
