Arizona ....not just a desert

What’s surprising about Arizona is how green it is. When you are driving down to the North rim of THE Canyon there are forests and meadows right up to the rim. If you have only a short time choose the south rim for sure.

We spent a very sketchy night camped at the Quality Inn “campground” in Tuba city. This is a horrible place and we were so worried about Deb with all the meth addicts around she slept in our vestibule.

Then we parted ways with Deb so she could run for the border before her visa expired.

We toured the South rim on the bikes and via the shuttles to hermit’s rest. Luckily we arrived after the labor -day weekend so it was not mobbed and we camped at Mather point.

Flagstaff is a nice town and Dan found the perfect hotel. First the price was an amazing deal and then across the street was Walmart, a huge Laundromat, a self car wash with air-dry wand, a jiffy lube for the oil drop, and a tripadvisor 5 star Indian restaurant. We hung out here to rest up and regroup. We rode to the Montezuma Castle thru Sedona and the Red rock Scenic byway.

Now we are off to New Mexico for some bike service and new tires at Sandia BMW in Albuquerque.
