SOUTHWESTERN UNITED STATES, FALL 2008 travel blog


DEPARTING GRAND CANYON Arizona does not recognize Daylight Savings Time, so we're 2 hours behind time in Arkansas. Consequently, we are still waking early, and this morning was no exception. We discussed what else there was to do in Grand Canyon within our physical capabilities, and concluded that we had done all we set out to do, except buy souvenirs. Kay took off to do last minute shopping while Donald readied DunnGone for the journey home. Unfortunately, we forgot about the time change and the stores were closed. After waiting some time, she headed back out, returned shortly, and we were headed home at 8:30 AM Arizona time.

ACOMA, NM A 7-hour drive led us to Acoma, NM, site of the Acoma Pueblo, longest continuously inhabited city in North America. Our original plan was to overnight at Blue Water State Park near the continental divide, but we saw wonderful billboards advertising a casino resort with great RV parking. We checked in, and it was really nice, designed perfectly. Regrettably, the spa and swimming pool were out of order, and the shuttle was not very prompt. Following their buffet, we signed up for the "free" slot machine pulls, Kay played enough to pay for dinner with what remained of the "free" money, and promptly lost $10 of her money. Tomorrow we're off to Roswell, Kay's "birthplace"; it's entirely possible she will be beamed up and Donald will return home alone!
