Oct 25, 2016 - Day 37, Monday, Oct. 10

We started our day with a visit to the Petrified Forest and the Painted Desert. We spent about 3 hours driving through the park and visiting the museums in the park. One thing this trip has done for me is to point out the wonderful variety within the continental USA. About the time we think we've seen it all, God just amazes me with His artwork and creativity. We do serve an 'Awesome God!'

Aug 23, 2016 - Winslow, AZ..we're standing on the corner!

We woke up to a cloudy, cool morning and just as we were ready to leave, it started to rain. Since we had to drive from an elevation of 3500 ft to 7200 ft and most of it occurred within 18 miles, Jay drove the RV and I drove the car, instead of us towing the car. It was definitely a good idea. There were so many vehicles on the side of the road overheating, but we both made it with no issues. We met at an exit on I-17 near Flagstaff, hooked up the car and we were quickly on our way heading east on I-40. It was a short drive to Winslow,...

Jun 6, 2016 - Meteor Crater

This post is a little late due to the very poor WiFi availability at Meteor Crater RV Park, which is just west of Winslow Arizona on I-40. Our Trip from Holbrook Arizona to Meteor Crater RV Park was the shortest to date, just 40 miles. Our stop here was made so we could visit the actual crater site. It is believed the crater was formed by a 150 foot meteor that struck here about 50,000 years ago. Contrary to early beliefs that the meteor was buried beneath the site, it is now known that most of the meteor actually vaporized upon impact. Due...

May 11, 2016 - Petrified Forest NP, Meteor Crater Landmark

We have visited 19 US, 2 Canadian National Parks and some National Monuments; each entailed hours of driving, securing a nearby RV park plus dealing with crowds and traffic once in the park. I am happy to write that our visit yesterday to The Petrified Forest National Park was none of the above. On our way from Gallup to Winslow we visited Petrified National Park, drove into the park in our 42 foot coach towing a Fiesta. There were very few people in the visitor's center and park and plenty of spaces to park! Plus this is a dog friendly...

Spring Trip 2016

Nov 6, 2015 - COLD

From Meteor Crater RV Park Arizona Today was another day of changes. We originally were going to stay in Albuquerque but we decided to go further to Gallup. That's where the lovely old hotel is located that we discovered last time we were through here. When we stopped for gas at the Continental Divide it had snowed 10" a few days before and was going to be 13 degrees tonight. Gallup was just a few miles down the road. Decided to go to Plan B and go to Holbrook which is another Rt. 66 town and was going to be 24 tonight. Better than 13 but...

Oct 12, 2015 - Winslow/Holbrook

Winslow Winslow was named for either Edward F. Winslow, president of St. Louis and San Francisco Rail Road, which owned one half of the old Atlantic and Pacific Railroad, or Tom Winslow, a prospector who lived in the area. The last Harvey House (La Posada Hotel) opened in 1930. It was designed by Mary Colter, of Grand Canyon fame. The hotel closed in 1957 and was used by the Santa Fe Railway for offices. The railroad abandoned La Posada in 1994 and announced plans to tear it down. It was saved by Route 66 fans, and it currently serves as a...

2015 RV Adventure

Oct 4, 2015 - Meteor Crater

From Alburqueque we travelled west to Winslow Arizona where I stood on a street corner for many hours, but no girl my Lord in a flat bed ford slowed down to take a look at me! We spent the night at the campground closest to the Meteor Crater that is reportedly the best preserved in the world. Alas the weather went crappy and we only stayed the one night. Campground was well kept and the people running it were great.

Sep 3, 2015 - New Mexico to Arizona

We're at Meteor Crater, Arizona, just past Winslow. we've been here before in 2012 and toured the crater as well as the corner. If you want to see the photos you need to go to my 2012 journal, On Our Way West Again, and look for April 23. A Good Humor truck drove through our campground last night in Albuquerque, but neither of us figured it out in time to stop him. I think we are both suffering from ice cream withdrawal. I bought a package of the state cookie for New Mexico: Red Chile Biscochito. Cinnamon and chile, an interesting...

May 18, 2015 - On the Road Again

We left Santa Fe on the 14th, our destination for a one night stay was Winslow, AZ. We were working our way to St.George, Utah. We fought the wind most of the way there, but it still was not blowing hard enough to force us into the decision to get off the road. We stayed the night at Meteor Crater Rv Park. The park is nicely laid out, plenty of space for big rigs & the roads were quite wide. We would definitely stay there again.

May 8, 2015 - Homolovi State Park, AZ

Hi Everyone, We have had a couple of interesting days. Left the thriving city of Globe, AZ after visiting a laundromat. My friend thinks it would be fun to write a book on laundromats across the US and the people seen in them. I think she is correct. There are some characters, including us. We headed for Homolovi State Park near Winslow AZ. As we drove down or up the road Mike had made several comments that finally came together, such as “looks like we are back in the desert”, “there is the Gila River again”, and “the wind was blowing the...

Takin the Slow Road

Apr 17, 2015 - Winslow, AZ

4/17/15 (Friday) Left Sedona RV Park at 9 am. Drove to the Oak Creek Viewpoint on Hwy 89 N. Then thru Flagstaff on Rte 66 and continued on 89 N to Sunset Crater Volcano Nat’l Monument…a worthwhile stop. There was still a dusting of snow on the crater. Back on Hwy 40 E, (Old rte 66) towards Winslow. Tried to find Winona, but it was only a Shell Station. Then passed the Twin Arrows Indian Outpost, now abandoned except for the twin arrow sculpture on the right and the new Casino on the left of the road. Stop at the Meteor City Rest Stop and...

Apr 2, 2015 - Takin' it easy in Winslow, AZ

Our next stop was Winslow, AZ – what a fine place to be. Perhaps you’ve heard of it? We spent the early afternoon at the Meteor Crater just outside of town. About 250000 years ago a meteor 150 feet across collided with the earth at this point, leaving a very large depression. Unfortunately the entire meteor seems to have disintegrated so even when scientists drilled miles into the earth they found no samples. The exhibit was interesting, the actual crater was quite amazing, but because it is privately owned I have to say that it did not...
