Mar 1, 2018 - The Grand Canyon

3-1-18 Grand Canyon We planned to spend the entire day exploring what is called one of the seven wonders of the world, the Grand Canyon. We saw two films, one was a IMAX film, “Grand Canyon Hidden Secrets” in town. The other was in the park itself at the visitor center called “Grand Canyon- A Journey of Wonder, an interpretive film. We liked the second one better. We ran around taking pictures, learning lots about the geology, wildlife, ancient people, and more in the many museums that are in the park. The weather was sunny, a bit windy...

Feb 28, 2018 - Surprise to Tusayan, AZ

2-28-18 Surprise to Tusayan, AZ We got up this morning in Surprise hearing about all the snow up north. Of course we got right into the car and headed north into the high country. We must be snowbirds, we always seem to head towards snow. The drive was actually pretty nice. We started out on I-17 towards Flagstaff but veered off to the Prescott area just because we have not driven that way before. There was a little snow on the roadside, but no accumulation until we reached I-40. We stopped in the town of Williams for lunch around 1PM at...

Apr 1, 2015 - Headin' to Arizona through wide-open spaces

With a good night’s rest, an empty back seat, and a new trailer full of joy… we started our long, 1,123 mile journey to Arizona. Our arrival date wasn’t until April 2nd, so we split up our drive in to 240 mile segments (more or less). We headed across the Texas panhandle, and its beautiful scenic views of gas wells, and oil rigs. At the end of the day, we pulled into San Angelo State Park… a stark contrast to Mother Neff, clearly San Angelo wasn’t on the list to receive funding for any upgrades. The years of drought had taken a toll on the...

Apr 8, 2013 - Grand Canyon

Our trip from Lake Med to T, Az took approximately 4 hours. We arrived early afternoon and stayed at he Camper Village RV Park just behind the town General Store. As we travel we become more aware that RV parks in Oregon are more developed, most having either asphalt or concrete pads to park on as well as grass and nice landscaping. Although this park was adequate it was rustic with gravel sites. However, on the plus side we were only 5 miles from the gate of Grand Canyon National Park. Another positive was that the town of Tusayan was very...

Apr 21, 2012 - Kaibab National Forest

Kaibab National Forest Apr 21, 2012 We left North Ranch and took Hwy 89 north. Turned left on Kirkland Rd to the village of Kirkland and turned right on Skull Valley Rd which took us to Prescott without travelling on Hwy 89. Trucks and trailers are prohibitted on Hwy 89 into Prescott because of the steep and curving roads. After driving it with only the GMC, I wouldn't want to try it. Once we got to the western side of Prescott we found our way, with the use of our handy Garmin GPS, we affectionatly call her Miss Information, back onto Hwy...

May 14, 2011 - Grand Canyon, AZ

We went to the Grand Canyon for a couple of days, to try and set up our clubs Arizona State rally, to be held in October. I can't say we made a lot of progress, but we think it might work out, or we will find a new location! Whenever we visit the canyon, I am always amazed at the beauty, the size and the grandeur of the canyon. Even though I have hundreds of canyon photo's I just had to snap a couple more. We also were able to watch the local tribe perform a hoop dance. Tomorrow we head for Albuquerque, and points east. we have changed our...

May 25, 2010 - Day 35 Tusayan Camp

from tuba city, we travelled thru the painted desert where some areas were awesome, some just, well, not so pretty at least not to us... here is day one of our grand canyon trip... now this is a return trip for us and we're sorry to see what time will do to a park that at one time was so remote and not so over used, i would say soon many of our parks may close because on so many of our trips to them, we see few to no americans camping, or visiting them only foreigners who rent campers only to leave and soon IF that ends so goes money to...

May 20, 2010 - Ten X Camp, Tusayan, AZ

Ten X NFS Campground This is a great campground with very large sites just about 2 miles S of Tusayan, if you can do without hookups. The altitude is about 6,000 ft. which will be helpful in our next adventure. We made several day trips to the Grand Canyon.

May 17, 2010 - Grand Canyon Nat'l Park

Monday, 17 May: This morning we drove from Williams to just south of Tusayan, AZ. The trip took a bit longer than an hour which included "photo ops" on Route 66. We are about four miles south of the Grand Canyon's south entrance in the Kaibab National Forest Ten-X campground. A beautifully rustic setting, with no water or electricity, but Carpe Diem is set up for "boondocking" with a nice new bank of deep cycle batteries and a generator with which to charge them. We're planning to spend a few days here depending on the weather. Tomorrow's...

May 29, 2008 - Meet Up with Swindlings

Thursday, May 29, 2008 Kaibab Forest Meet Up with Swindlings We pulled out of Williams this morning around 8:30 in time to get to Flagstaff by 10:00 for our appointment. The drive was pretty. We waited in the RV for a little while until someone was able to come out and look things over then it was into the waiting room for a while. There was another truck driver in there too. He was kind and gave us the remote but some of those old shows were on and they were better than other things that were probably on TV so we watched some Beverly...
