Peek-A-Boo Slot Canyon – Utah – May 19, 2021

My first slot canyon, after a 4 mile-ish sandy off-roading trail we reached Peek-A-Boo slot canyon.

Even though we were not there at the best time for light, it was amazing

We made it to Utah, and found a great campsite on BLM land right outside Zion National Park

After setting up camp, eating dinner, who wouldn’t want to explore something called the Butthole of the Dragon – a cave/tunnel

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

May 16, 2021

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…

May 15, 2021

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.
