New Mexico to Arizona via Salt River Canyon
We took highway 60 to Canyon Lake Campgrounds in Arizona. We had a blast at the campground with the Watkins on the first day and the next day we went to a park day in Mesa with the Watkins clan. Kids loved it! I loved it!! It was nice to be around other kids again. Then we headed to Guru Mike's in Sedona and hit Montezuma's Castle on the way. We went to Red Rock Crossing and then Slide Rock State Park before we proceed to the Grand Canyon on Easter Sunday! What a whirlwind week it has been getting back into civilization! We were in Pie Town for 10 weeks with lots of side trips. Cliff took the kids to Boulder to ski and to hang with friends. I picked my brother up in Phoenix and repaired a tire. Lots of grumpy moments have transpired, but overall it has been a good experience. We are meeting lots of really interesting people and seeing some awesome places we will never forget.
We are slowly making our way west and if we can we will work/volunteer/live on some organic farms in California and possibly in Hawaii. We have don't always have a lot of access to high speed internet, so I am squeezing in this time at guru Mike's before we leave in the morning.
