Cottonwood, Verde Valley

Stayed for three weeks at Verde Valley RV Park near Cottonwood, AZ, just a few miles South of Sedona, one of our favorite spots in Arizona. While there we rode the Verde Canyon Railroad, visited the historic mining town of Jerome, spent time wandering the ruins of a 1000+ yr old village at Tuzigoot National Monument, wondered at the equally ancient cliff dwellings at Montezuma Castle National Monument spent time in Sedona too, and made day trips to Flagstaff and Prescott.

Kanarraville, UT: Red Ledge RV Park and Campground

After leaving Grand Canyon NP we headed north to Kanarraville, UT and the Red Ledge RV Park, a small but very nice little park (22 sites with full hook-ups) conveniently located near Zion National Park and just a day trip from Bryce Canyon National park. Kanarraville is located about 12 miles south of Cedar City on I-15. Great little park but I recommend reservations. SOB

Cross this off the Bucket List

The Grand Canyon

It has been on the bucket list for years. One of the most iconic and magnificent places in America and this year, finally, we made it there; the Grand Canyon is “awesome” in the true meaning of that word, to inspire awe or wonder.

We stayed in Grand Canyon Camper Village in Tusayan, AZ, just one mile south of the park entrance. Each morning we arose, walked across the street and caught the free shuttle into the park. Once there we hiked, or rode the convenient shuttles which took us to the most scenic spots along the south rim. in the evening we caught the return shuttle back to Tusayan. It was a Grand experience.

Shoshone Falls

We spent a week in Pocatello, ID where we lived  when we sold everything and hit the road as nomads. we return each year, usually at about this same time.  We viit friends and relatives and  see doctors. Merre’s  92 year old mom lives in Blackfoot and we like to check in. Merre’s youngest brother, Daniel, lives there  as well and we still have many friends in  Pocatello. We usually state at the Ft. Hall casino,  just off of I-15 . They have a nice little RV park, I’ll get a review up soon. On the first day we were there we  drove over to Shoshone Falls in the Snake River Canyon just outside of Twin Falls. Merre had never seen the falls, and spring, when the river is high, is the optimum time, as you’ll see from the pictures.

Just about a half mile down stream of the falls is the very spot where Evel Knievel attempted his  motorcycle jump over the  Snake River  Canyon. He failed, of course. but the TV  coverage made him world famous. Here’s the spot:

Rods and Rhodies: Cars, Cars, Cars

We went  into Old Town Florence yesterday to attend the annual Rods and Rhodies invitational car show. Over 150 cars Including the Copper Caddy from Velocity Channel’s Bitchin’ Rides and a set of cool American Graffiti tribute cars, including Toad’s Vespa, A beautiful 58 Chevy and John Milner’s yellow deuce coupe.

Hands down this very classy custom 38 Ford convertible was our favorite car.

This is a 49 Willys Wagon. Back in the 70’s, Merre and I had a nice 51, green and white but not nearly as nice as this one.

A cool 57 Buick with white leather and suicide doors

 

and more  cars, cars and cars

This happens every year so if you’re on the coast of Oregon in early September, Florence is the place.
