This was a long drive today on two-lane roads without very many services. Luckily, my motorhome has a 55 gallon gas tank, so I can drive a good distance.
The first thing I did this morning was laundry. When a campground has a laundry, I try to take advantage of it because I never know when I will find the next one. Laundromats in towns are OK, but most have very small parking lots, so I often have to pass them by. I also needed to fill my fresh water tank up because I knew the campground this evening had no water. All of this meant, I did not get on the road until 11:00 am.
This certainly is pretty country!
The best part is not much traffic.
I passed several clusters of snow-covered mountains. The elevation of the road was between 5,000 and 7,000 feet, so it was very chilly.
Enjoyed my brief stop at this pull-off.
Note the snow or rain falling in the distance.
And finally, my campground for the next couple of nights! This is actually a very high (6,000') mesa with canyons on all three sides. Going to be a really cold night at this elevation.
Looking down into the canyons on one narrow stretch of the road. This is a teaser for the stuff to be seen in tomorrow's post!!
