We make it to Silt, Colorado

Our second stop on the way to Colorado Springs took us to the KOA Campground in Silt, Colorado. This is a decent KOA, and the ladies behind the counter that checked us in were very nice and happy to give us any information we needed. The spots were fine, they felt a little close together …
