Penner's Spotlight - June Foster - US - Colorado

Pens on a World Map
Penner’s Spotlight

Location: Colorado

Monarch Pass 

Visiting Monarch Pass, between Salida and Gunnison, Colorado, is like arriving at the top of the world.
Even in the middle of summer, patches of snow fill the mountain peaks and grace the sides of the road. At 11,312 feet above sea level, it's one of the highest passes in the Rocky Mountains. Exhilarating! Right?
Our RV broken down in Monarch Pass
But if your RV suddenly gives a loud bang and refuses to go any farther when you finally arrive at the summit, be careful.

Yes, that happened to me and my husband. Yet I truly believe the Lord was with us. Right across the road from where we coasted to a stop, we found an old country store and were able to get the phone number of a mobile service.
Within a couple of hours, our hero, riding up in a blue truck, fixed our problem without too much hesitation. A broken serpentine belt.

So the next time you travel through Monarch Pass, carry a few extra belts with you - just in case.

Have you traveled in an RV before? Do you have a road tripping story to tell?

The fraternity co-ed who coaxed Jillian Coleman upstairs that night is no more than a blur in her memory, but the consequences will haunt her forever.

  1. Morgan, I've so enjoyed sharing my experience in Monarch Pass with you and your readers. Thank you for the opportunity. And as an RV'er, I've got plenty more stories to share, as you can probably guess. Like our canvas awning unrolling as we traveled along the interstate and the night I saw a mouse under our couch. Blessings, June

    1. Hi June! Thanks for being my guest! :) A mouse was definitely an unwanted stowaway! lol.
