After leaving Nashville we decided to travel through the states of Illinois, Missouri and
Kansas without sightseeing. We did camp in each state but just lazed around the campground
pools for 5 days. The campgrounds were in desolate farm country but they did have good pools.
I'm sure there are things to see and do in each of the states, but we wanted to save the
sightseeing for the mountains.
Mom reviewed the campgrounds while we were driving and she selected a real good one here in Colorado Springs. Besides being a good campground with things to do, it is centrally located to the various sights which we want to see.
