May 18, 2019 - Cameron AZ

Cameron AZ Day 1 Thursday May 16 Brian had planned to use I-17 north through Flagstaff to US 89 as the route for our first day with an expected departure time after 9 am (to miss early morning traffic on I-202 and I-101 to reach I-17). We were ready to leave by 8 am and high winds were forecast for northern Arizona in the afternoon so Brian suggested we change our route to SR 87 through Payson to Flagstaff. This route is a few miles longer (20 or so), slower two lane highway with several steep climbs but it usually has much lighter traffic...

Sep 28, 2018 - Navajo Taco

September 28, 2018 A Day of own time. Since arriving on Monday at the Grand Canyon National Park we have been on the go constantly. We have been at every viewing point for the Canyon and some of them twice. Today was a well-deserved day of rest. A chance to catch up with the Laundry while enjoying our morning of coffee. Also giving us a chance to update our various sites with some pictures of the trip. Our internet connection is very slow here both for the Canyon Camping RV Resort, and our Verizon Hot Spot. It’s sporadic, sometimes 1g and...

Grand Canyon

Oct 2, 2014 - Durango, CO to Cameron, AZ

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...

Mar 21, 2013 - Route 66 and the Grand Canyon

Lots to write tonight. First of all I forgot to write that we have been through 3 border checks and never had a bit of trouble. The last one I warned the guys that he was checking on 2 women who have been on the road for 5 weeks and had done a lot of shopping. Thank God he did not ask where the rocks came from. I don't think he wanted to know. Jocelyn is only sending pictures of Route 66 today. We took so many that she does not have room for both. We had a blast on Route 66, or should I say in the Route 66 gift shops. We traveled a long way...

Apr 22, 2011 - Grand Canyon helicopter ride & Little Colorado River

Oh yes, yes, yes! The winds were much, much lower than yesterday and we were able to take the helicopter ride into the Grand Canyon today. It was so worth the wait - all I can say is WOW!!!!!!!!! The helicopter's movements were very gentle and the flight experience was terrific. So much more of the canyon could be seen than the sights we saw yesterday from the ground. In the afternoon we travelled within the Navajo Indian Nation on our way to Page, AZ. We stopped at the Little Colorado River Gorge which is located and run by the Tribe. The...

Sep 7, 2010 - Tuesday, Cameron, AZ (220 Miles)

Today we drove the 200 plus miles to Cameron on the south side of Grand Canyon. In route we stopped outside of Page to see the Glen Canyon Dam. At 710 ft tall, it is the nation’s second highest concrete arch dam – only Hoover Dam is higher by 16 ft. Built in the 60’s, the dam created Lake Powell from the Colorado River. Most of the Lake is in Utah, but provides recreation for the whole area. The lake was named for John Wesley Powell, who in 1869 led the first Colorado River expedition through the Grand Canyon. Our campground is across the...

Oct 9, 2008 - Panguitch, Utah to Cameron, Arizona

It was a bright sunny morning with clear skies but we still had to wait a little while for the heavy frost to melt off the seat of the bike! Yikes! Although it did not really take long to warm up, we needed the liners in our jackets until late afternoon. We travel through the pass at Jacobs lake which reached 7,900 ft and it was definitely chilly at that elevation. We headed south from Panguitch to Carmel Junction, and then steered west to Zion Canyon. For anyone who has not visited Zion I don’t think I can come up with the words to...

Well we made it to the Grand Canyon (south side, north side was still closed due to snow)and yes it is definetly very GRAND. It is so awesome amd hugh that you really get that small feeling. We took a 3 mile hike down into the canyon (which was the easy part)and around each turn there was always another view that just wowed you. We kept trying to take pictures to capture it and hope we don't bore you with what we show here. We had a really great day between hiking, taking a few ranger talks and just viewing this wonder of the world. Our...

2008 trip

Apr 18, 2008 - Heading north to Grand Canyon

Had breakfast at hotel before leaving at 8.30am. First call was to garage to purchase petrol and then to Walgreen for medication for colds and flu. Now well stocked up but hopefully won't need it. Linda much better today after her early night. Hit the road and passed through some beautiful countryside. Many of the mountains still covered in snow. Arrived at Sedona about 11am and was surprised to see how much it had changed from being a proper Wild West town to a more up market place. Plenty of little shops selling nic-nacs. Found Post...

Oct 31, 2007 - Cedar City, Utah to Cameron, Arizona

This morning the skies had cleared and the sun was shining warmly. What a nice change from yesterday. Once again I needed to tighten chain, which had stretched quite a bit. I will keep an I on it today but I doubt it will last much longer. I headed south down the freeway from Cedar City then east on highway 9 to Zion Canyon. It was a relief to finally get onto a small scenic highway. I have been to Zion a couple of times but it was many years ago. The canyon is simply majestic. The colours, the towering cliffs and the fantastic rock...
