A busy day, we camped last night above 9000′ and then hiked Saddle Mountain to North Rim of Grand Canyon.
Then we explored forest service roads
till we found this awesome lunch spot
That evening I did a mountain ride along the Arizona Trail with several overlooks of the Grand Canyon and awesome forests
Day 4 of road trip and what an awesome camp, right on the edge of the Little Colorado River (at least it was at the bottom of the cliff)
Petrified National Forest
What we look like at every stop ; )
My first Petrograph… a stork delivers a baby or eats a frog?
Twin Arrows gas station on Route 66 in Arizona
The Grand Canyon from the Historic Navajo Bridge
Yep, 13 more hours of driving, damn Utah is a long ways away. Stopped at the leaning tower of Texas and Slug Bug Ranch on Route 66. Slug Bug Ranch is like the Cadillac Ranch, but way cooler.
Of course you still have to visit the Cadillac Ranch once….
Ghost town of Glenrion TX/NM
I love this Americana history stuff…
13 more hours of driving today, but made it Texas after a stop at the oldest bridge in Arkansas, the Route 66 museum in Clinton, OK and camped at McClellan National Grasslands.
Who doesn’t love a VW Bus?
My view for 13 hours – check out James and Elizabeth’s travels on YouTube – Flight of the Crowswing
13 hours of driving, I-40 from Greensboro to Arkansas, Gas shortages due to a pipeline break, Gus’s fried chicken in Memphis, the bridge over the Mississippi River was closed due to cracking but we made it to camp at Wattensan WMA.
Meeting James and Elizabeth after they became Texas residents and joining them for their year on the road.
Have to find this picture.
Finally a win, I don’t think I have won a match in the whole Spring USTA season, good to get one on the last day.
My vintage Snap-on 1/2″ ratchet – I couldn’t find a date code, but it pre-1960s I am sure.
Hard boiled double yoke eggs to make deviled eggs. I only have about 25 double yoked eggs left, they are huge…
