While heading to Arizona we had a stop over in Albuquerque. The next morning we woke up to around 6 inches of snow! What a shock after spending the previous week sunny with highs in the 80’s. Luckily it was a distant memory by that afternoon. The campground was right on the old Route 66 road and had a few cool old retro trailers.
Next we drove west into Arizona and stopped at another old Route 66 campground in Holbrook, Arizona. We stayed here so we could go see Petrified Forest National Park. It had an amazing topography of pinkish hues, they call it the painted desert. Also much of it was littered with petrified wood. They looked like real logs but are hard stone. While in the area I dragged Anne to some cheesy left over Route 66 novelty stops like the Wigwam Motel and Winslow Arizona where we stood on the famous corner from the Eagles song Taking it Easy. 🙂
Our favorite stop in Arizona was Sedona. We have spent the last two weeks touring, hiking and photographing the area. The place is amazing with the red rock cliffs and beautiful vistas. Tomorrow we head north to Utah and can’t wait to see all the great National Parks and scenery it has to offer.
