The last few days, I’ve definitely done the tourist thing in Williams. I ended up going back to the Grand Canyon on 2 different days, one of them was rainy and I had hoped to get a picture of the canyon with some lightening in it, but I wasn’t quick enough. I also went back to Sedona to do a bit more hiking. It was also a rainy, overcast day. But the red rocks were still great!
One day I went to Meteor Crater, which is basically a hole in the ground. The crater is about 570 feet deep and .75 miles in diameter – in others words it is a big hole! The visitor center was interesting with all kinds of info on Meteors.
That same day, I went to Montezuma Castle National monument. It was rather interesting. They believe the “castle” was a 20 room apartment and it is 4 stories high. Just getting inside would be a chore.
I’m currently in Bernalillo, NM. It’s basically a suburb of Albuquerque. I toured Old Town Albuquerque today. It is mainly shops – I wasn’t there long! For lunch, I ate at “The Range Cafe” in Bernalillo, NM. I had one of the best meals that I have had while starting this adventure. I might go back in a couple of days.
David asked me to write more information about living in my RV. I don’t know how long it will take to get used to this, but I have a lot to still organize and a lot to learn. I still have things under the dinette table, although I can now sit at the table. I also have some things on the dinette seats. I haven’t yet gotten a schedule like I had in my “Sticks ‘n Bricks” house. Such as when to clean, what to clean… I am finding that I sweep and mop much more, but that takes me just a few minutes since it’s so small. I also need to work on a schedule for maintaining the RV – there is a lot that must be done to it. Simple things like cleaning the air conditioner vents needs to be done every couple of weeks. I have been in very dusty places recently so I’m guessing that’s why I need to do it this often.
Tomorrow I’m headed for another National Monument and I am going to travel the Turquoise Scenic byway.
