Mike the Headless Chicken

June 6-7, 2017
Monument RV Park
Fruita, Colorado

We arrived here a couple of days too late for the annual Mike the Headless Chicken Festival.  We need to work harder at being in the right place at the right time.   My disappointment knows no bounds.

Mike ended up without a head due to his owner's lack of ability with an ax.  Instead of being served as dinner,  Mike toured the country with his owner for a couple of years before his demise.

I love these friendly hay bales in their stylish overalls.

When we arrived at this park, our RV site was not ready.  The owner needed to cut some large low hanging branches from a tree.  I visited with some people while Dave watched the workers ride up and down in the lift and run their chainsaws.  No extra charge for the entertainment.

Today we drove to Colorado National Monument.

I don't think the food is very good at the Visitor Center.  This guy and his horse are pretty thin.

The cactus are just starting to bloom here.

Tomorrow we will leave and head north where the landscape is more varied.  We have seen enough rocks and canyons for awhile.
