Arrived at Grand Junction CO and, after dinner at the Village Inn restaurant, we got a room at the Palomino Inn (my suggestion - I like mom & pop motels and TripAdvisor had good customer ratings). The place was clean and undergoing exterior improvements (the rooms had already been remodeled). $70 for the night. Clean and comfortable, with free wifi and Direct TV. Score!

We packed the truck with dried mangos, soba noodles, peanut butter and tea for the mornings. All set.

Thus was ancient in origin and was how people were able to climb the mesas and canyons. On the way back ...

It's Saturday so decide to go for a curry, slightly different way of serving but a welcome change from burgers, pizzas and steak. Return to the town micro brewery for a night ...
