11/9/2015. Monday. “How glorious a greeting the sun gives the mountains!”, John Muir. As we left the Homolovi State Park in Winslow, we still had clear blue skies with departing glances at snow covered peaks and Humphrey’s Peak. What a beautiful sight!
We had this wonder sight in front of us all the way to Flagstaff, and even through town. The mountains got closer and bigger with even more beauty under a clear blue sky. My camera was just clicking away the entire time. I just loved seeing the snow! There is just something about beautiful snow capped mountains that touches my soul and I never tire of seeing them.
We wanted to stop in Flagstaff at a small military campground off the interstate, but it had already closed for the season. So we turned south just passed Flagstaff and said goodbye to our mountain view. A few days before we left Albuquerque, Flagstaff had 9” of snow and we saw indications of that as we headed South on I-17 over the mountains and through the forest. We both remarked that it was probably a beautiful sight when the snow fell.
From tree covered mountains, we wound up back in colorful bluffs. Just as pretty but totally different landscape.
We’re back! We have stopped here several times going back and forth to southern AZ. We had reservations for 6 days at the Krazy K RV Park in Camp Verde. It was a good thing! The park was completely full and even the overflow areas were full. There are right many ‘seasonals’, but I don’t remember it ever being as full as was. Must be the time of year and the price is certainly right. One month is only $385 and that includes utilities. No wonder people stay here for long periods. We used Passport America and our 6 days was only $120. Can’t beat that and we will probably stop here again. I borrowed this picture from friends who stopped here a week or so before we did. This old timey truck was still around, and as my friend said, he pulls a fifth wheel with it. Cute!
