God sure does know how to paint. The painted desert and the petrified forest were well worth the day we spent riding and walking around. We hiked around the rim of the first batch of desert with the most color. We also hiked thru the crystal forest and took bunches of pictures of petrified logs.
Our destination tonight is Holman AZ at KOA. We are really liking the KOA kampgrounds. They are clean, well run, and affordable. Tomorrow is the Grand Canyon. We tried to make reservations, but Buddy the RV is too large for their campground so we are going to chance it and find something somewhere tomorrow night.
This is our third night in a row to stay on Route 66 which is kind of neat. It was too windy tonight for the planned hamburger cookout, so my lovely wife came to the rescue and grilled them on the pancake griddle. In the words of the Red Robbin commercial, "Yumm".
The kids are working on their memory travel scrap books putting the brochures and post cards along with highlites of the trip. Buddy is sporting some new bumper stickers as well as two more States filled in on his travel map.
