We hooked up and left Heaton Bay Campground and drove south on Highway 91. We went through Copper Mountain and Leadville and stopped off in Buena Vista to have beers at the new Eddyline Brewpub. We went on to Salida where I had a beer and Carolyn had an iced Chai latte at the Amicas Brewpub. Then we drove through Monarch Pass to Gunnison where I had another beer at Gunnison Brewing. Then we drove west to the Elk Creek Campground in the Curecanti National Recreation Area on Blue Mesa Reservoir. We got the last available site with electric hookups.
