So here we are back in the Grand Canyon State. Tucson is a great choice for a couple of months for one huge reason... nice weather with sunny days and mild nights.
Last Saturday when we pulled out of Moab, it was cold. As we drove south down Main Street, I wasn't so sure about making the move. We were leaving our friends and doctors. But it was cold!
Saturday (11/1) was probably the worst travel day we have ever experienced. Wind was the culprit. Crosswinds at 40-50 mph just about the whole way from Moab to Flagstaff where we stopped to spend the night. Joe spent the better part of the day sawing the steering wheel to keep Belle in her lane.
|The dust put a damper on our views this trip...not like in the spring when it was crystal clear!|
Dust was a factor...and I tried to get pictures of huge tumbleweeds crossing the roads, but that didn't work out.
We were glad to call it a day and stop in Flagstaff where the winds howled and the rains poured all night.
|Yikes! I thought we were going south...|
|Just north of Phoenix...|
We also started a DIY project... pulled up the carpet in Belle. We are replacing it with an inter-locking vinyl tile. Hope to get an early start in the morning and maybe finish the living/kitchen area.

It sure is fun taking photos on travel day...the highways and byways...some famous, some not so...

Take care, and...
