With a very loose route and little planning on the trip other than asking folks where is cool to go in each place we had finally by this point figured out the optimal nighttime accommodations! The answer to our road trip prayers...the KOA cabin! This was the first one we stayed in Fountain Colorado. They were reasonably priced, all over the US, and late night check in was always easy as pie. Just be sure to bring your own bedding and you are set for a comfortable yet slightly rustic stay. After waking up and making a nice breakfast we explored Garden of the Gods and the Manitou Cliff Dwellings.
