Flat Tops Trail Scenic Byway

2014 West then East, Colorado, Road Trip, States

The docent at the visitor center in Meeker told us about the Flat Tops Trail Scenic Byway. It’s shown as a major road on the official Colorado highway map but to call this mostly gravel road between Meeker and Yampa a highway would be a stretch. It is a nice wide level gravel trail but traveling at 20 to 40 mph doesn’t make for rapid transit. However it is gloriously scenic. We found a place we would have loved to camp – by Silver Lake – but for the fact that there was absolutely no one else around.

All Because of an Eclipse

It was a fabulous opportunity to not only view the 2024 Solar Eclipse from within the path of totality but also to enjoy a five day weekend with friends from the T@B trailer community at Ohio’s East Harbor State Park on the shore of Lake Erie.
