What I did
I took Dolores back on the same route that I had driven yesterday. The breeze had started, but the road is quite bikeable. The only real problem is the cracks in the road. They’re spaced evenly, about every fifty feet and about three inches wide. Made for a challenged for my “experienced” neck. I let the beauty of this sacred place distract me from the annoyance and enjoyed the ride. I saw no one, until I had ridden back nearly to the Visitors Center
The ride back was a bit easier, dependent on how the “Windfast”, Arizona wind was blowing. The total trip was over nine miles, but wasn’t difficult.
I sat outside and read and such until after lunch. The I drove the five miles into Winslow, aka Windfast. I stopped at the Flying J Truck Stop and gassed up Sooby. With an RVers discount card I saved a bit on the cost.
I drove through town awhile and was impressed at how old and tired it looks. I saw several corners, but didn’t stop to “stand on” any of them. I went instead to the local Safeway to do a little shopping. Nice store. The clerk was a Navajo woman
Back at camp, I checked email and texted my friend Pete. Then I took a nap. That’s a good thing.
After dinner, I awaited the moonrise. It was worth the wait. It rose in the southeast right our of the window of the coach. I had the Fuji on the tripod, so I went outside and got some shots of the edge of the sunset and the glorious moon itself. We had some interesting clouds at the time, so the shots should look good. I haven’t worked on them yet, but will include them with this. I find that it’s easier to write in a document program and then copy and paste the Blog to the blog site. It’s a more forgiving application, to me, anyway.
I’ll move to Bonito Campground, north of Flagstaff, tomorrow. It’s a small Forest Service Campground, about twenty miles north of town. The trip will be about seventy-five miles and the location will be again in the mountains. It’s my first turn to true north for awhile. Keep comin’ back and you’ll hear the rest of the story. Gracias amigos!
