We were without an internet connection for a few days so will try to catch up today & tomorrow.

It was a beautiful day for the drive from Durango to Cameron & we had no problems with the truck or trailer. It was interesting to watch the country change from the high mountains surrounding Durango to the desert. We had a late lunch because the road didn't have pullouts or wide shoulders so it was hard to find a place to pull off. When we finally did stop, we had great views of monuments out in the desert. We had considered going to Monument Valley but decided against it. (Something to look forward to at another time.)

Cameron, AZ, is a trading post with a motel & rv park. We forgot to take the traditional pic of the trailer in the rv park but since it's pretty much a gravel parking lot with full hookups it wouldn't have been a great pic. Ha! It's fine for a couple of nights. We enjoyed Indian tacos for dinner tonite at the restaurant in the trading post & they were yummy.

Tomorrow we're taking a day trip to the Grand Canyon. More later...
