We just got back from a fun concert at the James M. Robb Colorado
River State Park in Fruita featuring Carrie Rodriguez, who is a singer
and fiddle player. The Colorado Riverfront Foundation hosts several
of these free concerts each summer. Proceeds from the sale of food
and drinks go to the Riverfront Foundation for building new sections
of the Riverfront Trail. The venue has a great backdrop of the Colorado
National Monument and there aren't any permanent seats so everyone
brings their lawn chairs or blankets. We met up with our friends Jim
and Judey and we enjoyed hanging out.
The skies threatened to open up and rain all over us the entire
time we were there, but it made for some really pretty sunset
clouds. At around 10pm we felt the first drops and that was our
signal to head out. We had fun and will probably go to a few more
of these concerts next summer.
