Sounds like you are having a good trip. Make sure you post pictures from Canyon de Chelly, I am hoping to get there this summer.

I forgot this, my wife is setting up something on my trip journel.com. The name we used is road tripin, we only posted a few pics of Carlsbad Cavern so far. Hopefully we will post more tonight or tomorrow of white sands. I will post some here when i figure out how to downsize the pics. I haven't had anytime to work on that.

Michelle, i have 2 pc's, one won't post pics for some reason, i'm getting an error message. The other is fine. We have a Canon 40D that we got 2 weeks ago, so i'm still learning how to use it.

George

Not yet. When I finally get the synaptic storms site up next month, I will be inviting articles and probably photos.

You can upload here by attaching files. Click on the paper clip icon in the posting box and there you go!

We stayed at the Edgington RV Park near White Sands, Very very nice owner i would stay there again. 13 dollars with PA, with wifi. So far all 3 of the places we stayed have been ok.
Have you considered Courtsey parking. It is a great way to meet other airstreamers. I have done a lot of it and it has all been a wonderful expereince.

So red it is.
Motorcycle? As in motorcycle? Red? I'm having flashbacks! Be careful!

Canyon de Chelly was a great NP, i'd say a 9 out of 10, only because we haven't been to any other big ones yet. Lots to do there, walk to the bottom of the canyon, with a couple of nice cliff walks on the way down that i wasn't to fond of, lol. I would have to say this one will be one of my favorites even after seeing all the other desert parks. There are a bunch of overlooks, you can also take a jeep tour into the canyon. My wife is posting pics on mytripjournal.com/roadtrippin . We will start taking smaller pictures with our other camera so we can post some here too.

There is a free boondocking campground right in the park. Very nice campgrounds, some pretty small rv sites, but there were some big ones. Great big area you can walk your dogs if you have any. The campground is 2 minutes away from the first overlook.

When we got our park pass in Carlsbad Cavern it was dated May instead of April, when we tried to get in Petrified forest they wanted to take my pass away and give me one for April even though there were only 10 day left in that month. She asked me for my liscense and held me up for 10 minutes, i told her to do what she had to do. She still called the park police to explain to me why it needed to be swapped out. By that time i had, had enough, i said give me back my liscense and my pass i don't want to go to your crummy park. I had to get rude, which i hate to do. We saw plenty of petrified wood up rt 40 where they sell it.

We went to Oak Creek Canyon today, from Flagstaff we took 89A all the way down to Sedona. Then we took 179 to 17 back to Flagstaff. What great views this route has, well worth the trip. We are going back tomorrow without the AS. On that route, there are plenty of little boondocking areas along the way for about 10-15 dollars per site.

There are a couple of shops in Petrified Forest/ Painted Desert NP where they sell Petrified wood. Interestingly, since they can't sell anything from inside the park. The stuff they sell is brought in from outside the park and then sold.

Grand Canyon

This guy made it very clear this was his cliff, lol. We waited till he looked a little more friendly before we passed, since it was probably 1k feet down from where he is standing. We are at Zion now, it's a very nice park too, but Canyon De Shelly is still my favorite. Next time we are at the Grand Canyon, (not counting the NR may 15th, we would like to go rafting on the river. I think that would be a great trip in a little warmer weather. Bryce Canyon tomorrow, i can't wait to drive up thru the tunnel in Zion, those switchbacks leading up to it are great. We shall see how the 5.3 L Silverado does going up.
