May 6, 2011 Flagstaff to Kanab

Once again, we were ready to go at o'dark thirty...we actually pulled out of Black Bart's RV Park at 8:15, and topped off the gas tank and on the road by 8:30. 

We drove up 189 - and the scenery once again just knocked our socks off! 

We figured a 200 mile day would be pretty easy - NOT.  If we ever do that road again, we will split it into two days.  We got to Kanab at 3:30 pm, totally exhausted from twists, turns, ups and downs - the motorhome engine got pretty hot - we stopped twice to let it cool, once to have lunch, once just to shop...yep, along the way there are stands set up selling navajo jewelry and pottery - got something for my friend in Cheyenne, and got me a stunning necklace and earring set, in a verlant green - gorgeous!  I'll be wearing it for years to come I'm sure!

When we finally got to Kanab, we decided we needed the AC, so we stopped at the Kanab RV Corral - very nice small park, but most expensive campground we've been in to date.  Was $30.57 WITH our discounts!  Ouch!  However, right outside our door is a beautiful fully blooming lilac bush - and I have a bouquet on the table - oh smells heavenly!

I fixed dinner, shrimp with angel hair pasta & garlic, salad and garlic bread - it was yummy - just FYI, I don't always cook shrimp, but I had a 2 lb package that I bought back in Dec for New Year's Eve, and as you know, I ended up in a hotel in San Antonio heading for PA at that time.  So I needed to get it used up before it got freezer burnt!  Mission accomplished!

Tomorrow the plan is to pull out early, head to Cedar City, UT...where more adventures await!
