The sandstone buttes were just as beautiful going home as they were going East. I see the only problem I'm going to have is just when I get home, I'll have the itch to travel again!! No one told me this would be so addicting!!
This gentlemen was kicking it down the dirt road next to the highway. I don't know what he was going to get, but he was driving so fast the trailer was coming off the ground!! It's sights like this you don't see in my neighborhood!!
Up to 6,000 feet, I climbed up to Flagstaff. Knowing they don't really care for motorhomes, I had no intention of stopping, other than at a rest stop for the puppies and lunch for me. Were I in my truck, I probably would have stopped at several of the Indian Pawn shops on the road, each one with the "best prices"!! Just before this, the wind came up and jostled me for about 50 miles!!
West of Flagstaff I saw this huge fire. Yikes ... it's right where I'm going to be in 10 miles!! I held my breath, hoping I would be going far enough past so I wasn't in it's path!!
I pulled in to the Grand Canyon Railroad RV Park in Williams Arizona, where I stayed with the Golden Spikes a couple years ago. For $34 with Passport America, I have a 50 amp full hookup paved site with plenty of puppy room. The lady at the desk said the fire was a controlled burn, so I didn't have to worry about getting up in the middle of the night to flee!! The 4:55 am train was right on time, passing a couple of hundred yards to the South of me, but that's okay ... I was already up. I think I'm still on Central Time. Kind of hard to get used to the sun not coming up until 7:00 am and going down at 5:00 pm!!! I saw on Facebook there were lots of beautiful sunsets around the country and Williams was no exception.
I'm sure there will be plenty more adventures, but like my Alaska trip, it's pretty hard to say goodbye to the Great Adventure. Instead, I'm going to look at it as the beginning of my Even More Awesome Adventures to come!!
I remember some GREAT shops here in Williams that seem to be calling my name ... and I'm pretty sure they will cost me less than Gallup!!! Stay tuned for more adventures ........
