Jun 2, 2015 - El Morro NP, NM
Another day of frustrating Internet service. Tomorrow we go to Flagstaff to get the engine light checked. The Ford dealer told us to plan on a whole day so we are going to plant ourselves at AT&T until we have service both in their store and outside of it. We came back to revisit Homolovi Campground. It was cold, rainy and windy on our last visit. Today it is hot and windy. The Ranger told Mike anything below 70 mph winds is considered breezy here. We have resigned ourselves to watching television for at least the news tonight. For anyone...Jump to full entry
Sep 7, 2011 - and today's history lesson...
September 6 - 7 In our journey back east we turned west to check out a few sites west of Albuquerque. The first of these was El Morro, a National Monument that was significant in the trade routes through the area. It is here that a pool of water sat as an oasis for the people who lived here and the Spanish travellers to rest at. The pool sits at the base of a mesa, El Morro, also called Inscription Rock, so named for all the inscriptions found around the walls. These inscriptions range from petroglyphs carved by the Pueblo Indians who lived...Jump to full entry
Sep 30, 2010 - Off to the Balloon Fiesta in Albq.
Yeah! We are on our way to the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta with the Escapees Boomers group. We so glad to be leaving Overgaard, AZ. We enjoyed the summer, but we have been counting the days until we left. We spent the night at the El Morro campground so that we could visit the El Morro National Monument. Oddly enough, we met up with Bob McIntosh and Elinor Aderton at El Morro. They have previously been to the Albq. Balloon Fiesta.Jump to full entry
We decided to break at Grants, NM staying at a Passport America park right off the interstate. We might have thought that the interstate noise would bad, but I never heard any road noise because of the sounds of the trains! Evidently this was a major train intersection and they ALL had to blow their horns long and loud. This continued all night. Had we not already paid for two nights, we would have left. We spent a lot of down time reading etc. We did get to a super walmart and watched a lot of movies.Jump to full entry
Sep 14, 2006 - New Mexico: September 2006
New Mexico Gallup and Taos: September 2006 We started our New Mexico RV visit a few days earlier than planned. We entered the state in our Saturn, following the tow truck as it carted our home down the highway before us. Due to a problem with our power steering pump, we were towed to Gallup New Mexico, where we spent a few days caring for necessary RV service. While not the ideal circumstances for our first visit to the state, we made the most of the situation. We did some sightseeing in Gallup while we waited for parts and the repair...Jump to full entry
Jul 4, 2005 - Happy 4th of July!
Can you think of a more patriotic place to wake up on the 4th of July??!! Warren and I woke early and went to the rim to watch the sunrise while Rachel was at camp being violently ill. The colors in the canyon were gorgeous....red, orange, green, browns of every shad slowly unfolding across the canyon. Sitting in the pine trees, drinking coffee (Ok, Warren broke down and brought me a coffee pot at our last stop) watching the sunrise. Perfect. Now its time to head down the mountain....we are headed for a small Bed and Breakfast outside of...Jump to full entry
