I enjoyed the scenery as we drove Highway 60 from Phoenix and Springerville. With our 60 ft. in length truck & RV. The highway goes through some mountains with great switchbacks. We had checked out the road on Google maps street level before deciding on the route. We had to make sure the curves weren't too tight & that Chuck could maneuver our rig around them.
There was one section of road, see picture, that ...
... up and as we were already wet we decided we couldn't get any wetter. I am glad we stayed because shortly after the rodeo started at 7pm the rain eased and we slowly dried off.
We saw all that you would expect at a rodeo and some we didn't such as Mutton Racing..."legalised child abuse", basically parents allowed their 4 year old son or daughter to be sat on top of a sheep and sent in to the arena to see how long they could stay on before they were thrown off by ...

... archer and good with the BB guns too. Canoeing was OK but we were all expecting to do it down a river but disappointingly it was on the small trout pond where we did the fly fishing.
Abi & Oli went to the hot tub at 6pm and Charles went for a run. I got some peace and quiet on my own for an hour.
It really is a beautiful place here, everyone is so friendly and can't do enough for you.
... I'm afraid.
Dinner was delicious. Charles and I had the signature dish of Elk whilst Abigail and Oliver had the safer chicken option. No large portions here just top quality cordon blue food.
A relatively early night of 10pm, although Charles didn't make it that far but as he has done all the driving so far we let him off.
We need a good nights sleep so we have enough energy for all the activities booked tomorrow.
Hope your keeping ...
