Holed Up In Flagstaff

After getting burnt out in the desert, we’re freezing in snow


Take a look above at the conditions at 8 am Pacific time on 5/9/17 , as we wait for the Flagstaff Arizona public library to open. Bouy’s in there somewhere!

We awoke to and ran from a lightning storm early this morning after camping in this roadside place about 40 miles east of Flagstaff:


Yesterday, we saw the petrified forest and painted desert – I prefer the landscape (visuals and hiking) and am not a geology geek, so we didn’t spend much time. Plus, we got a lightning warning upon entering the park, and the weather was deteriorating. Take a look at the storm clouds brewing, with intermittent lightning strikes:


The museum was excellent though, and a visit should be required for all those Trump loyalists and climate denying Republicans:


Note that The Beast has new plates – got licensed and registered in Arizona:


For now, let me just say that we’ve been “dispersed camping” and day hiking in National Forests at incredibly beautiful sites, but running into some harsh weather. The drive northwest along the Rio Grand out of Big Bend NP was spectacular, and the best so far.

More to follow after I download all the photos over the last 2 weeks – a bad day in the library can be useful and provides time to download and check email etc.
