May 4, 2011 Flagstaff AZ

First of all let me tell you something I forgot about in yesterday's post!  When we were just past the town of Alpine NM, off to the left there were a herd (okay, 6 of them) of ELK - David said they were all cows, but we were excited to see them just browsing in the woods!!!  We were at about 8500 ft elevation!
This morning we got up and headed up Hwy 180 again, and took the scenic loop through the Petrified Forest and Painted Desert National Parks.  I told David that God decided to 'wink' the middle of NOTHING to have this gorgeous scenery - made me cry a couple times!  Pictures can in no way do it justice, but here are a couple just so you know we were really there!

It took us about 2 hours to drive 27 miles, but it was worth every minute of it!
We continued down the road and arrived at Black Bart's RV park about 3pm.  It was recommended to us and it is a nice park.  We paid for 2 nights, and even with our discount it was $53.25, so a little more than we like to spend, and NO cable TV...but good wifi :) 

We drove downtown Flagstaff and got some tourist information for tomorrow - I did a little shopping at an Albertson's and then we came home and I made dinner.  We had shrimp fettuine alfredo and garlic bread...and there is enough for leftovers!  Woohoo! 

We firmed up plans to meet with David's brother John in Cedar City UT on Saturday, so we have some miles to travel...and more adventures tomorrow!

  1. We visited those parks a few months ago too. Gorgeous. I agree, that CG is a little pricy considering there was a discount.
