Grand Canyon, 5.20.19

We spent the night in Bluff, UT at the Cadillac Ranch RV Park. It rained all night. It stopped about 5 this morning. I’ve gotta say, we have encounterd alot of rain 🌧since we left CA.πŸ€” However, the one good thing about all of this rain is that it’s washing the majority of the dead bugs off of Shorty’s face! πŸ‘πŸ˜‰

Fixing breakfast of sausage and eggs this morning, this little tear drop was the view from my kitchen window.

To put it in perspective, I am 5’4″ and am as tall as this little guy. Oh, better yet, it’s about the size of a Volkswagen Beetle.🐞😁 It sure is cute!

We took a walk around camp b4 leaving and saw thousands of birds flying around the little marsh/pond in the center of camp. Look closely and listen, they sing so beautifully.

We saw this little bonfire area at the end of camp with a GREAT view.

The highway to Mexican Hat, UT. It was a one gas station town.

Mexican hat Rock.

More in Utah than in any other state have we come over a horizon and both have said “WOW!” with our mouths wide open.😲 Spectacular landscapes!!

The Cadillac Ranch Camp camp host suggested we take highway 163, and noted that between Mexican Hat and Monument Valley to look for a “Forest Gump” sign. He said that this is the portion of highway that Forest Gump ran down in the movie. We didn’t see the sign, but it was a nice stretch of highway.

We ran in to some rain, hail, winds and snow flurries on the highway. It was INTERESTING to drive thru these weather changes as we left Utah and entered Arizona. I took a couple of videos.😳

Snow flurrys in Tonalea, AZ

We saw this natural wind sculptured rock near the border of Utah and Arizona. The landscape is stunning.

As we traveled thru Utah and Arizona I saw many Native American families living in old motorhomes surrounded by plywood. It really hurt my heart and made me angry at the same time to see the Native American people living on THEIR land in such squalor and substandard conditions.😑 😭😫

It took me a few miles to get over this sight. I had to take some time to pray for the people, reflect on my life and thank God for how truly blessed I am. You see, I have about 49% of Native American blood running throughly my veins… I felt a connection. πŸ˜ͺ

Moving forward, we spent the afternoon at the Grand Canyon taking in those breathtaking views.Too many pix to post. These were truly postcard views. It was about 36 degrees so we moved thru the sights quickly!On our way to Williams, AZ we saw the most incredible sunset and stunning desert sky.😲We ended up spending the night in a hotel parking lot near the highway along with a couple other RVers and a couple of big rigs. πŸ˜‰
