Wildflowers on the I-40 Arizona hillside near Grand Canyon
On I 40, it started getting pretty windy which made the drive a lot of fun. As we climbed over 5,000 feet, we started getting snow and had intermittent snow all the way to the GC. We arrived here just about 4pm and got to our site with no problem. The sites are nothing to write home about as they are dirt and not a lot of space between sites. It will get down to 19 degrees tonight, so we turned the outside water hose off and will use our 50 gallon internal tank overnight, then refill it tomorrow. Also, you don't leave the sewer hose connected here because the ravens can smell them and come and poke holes in them which can make for an icky mess.
It snowed some more as the heavy clouds would drift over. Left a good amount on the car. But then the sun comes right out and warms it up until the next snow shower.
We had dinner in the RV then tried to get up to the canyon before sunset. By the time we found a parking place, it was getting to dark to really see. We came back to the RV and worked on internet connections. I am using my cell phone and extender. Carol is using her phone too. Seems to be working pretty good. At the Market Cafe they have free wifi and we tried it, but everyone else was there too and I suspect they were downloading movies and whatever. The speed was 54mb, but the actual throughput was pathetic.
Back to the wildflowers...by now you probably know Arizona well enough to know that the picture of the flowers is fake. I couldn't resist pulling someone's chain.
