2014 - Heading East Across the North - 6/24/14

After getting our new home in Tucson set up and helping get the Boy established in his his new place in Seattle, it's time to head East to see our family and friends. Escaping the triple digit temperatures is a nice bonus too. Since we're traveling in the summer, this allows us to take a northerly route through some areas of the country that we haven't seen before. 

Yesterday we headed north and made it to the Navajo reservation in the northeastern corner of Arizona, driving past Sedona and Flagstaff. We stopped at the Cameron Trading Post, established in 1916, now a major stopping point for tourists visiting the Grand Canyon and Monument Valley. The small RV park there was not much, but functional, and we ate dinner in the restaurant. I had the Navajo taco, made from Indian flat bread, it was good but seemed more "touristy" than Native American.  Today we head north to Utah and will drive through Monument Valley.
