Note: In answer to several requests, this is a repost of a 2010 blog. I have just two things to say about our visit to Canyon de Chelly National Monument – “Awesome!” and “If you have never been to this natural wonderland, put it at the very top of your travel plans NOW! You won’t […]

The temperatures in the desert are inching toward the triple digits and folks from Phoenix and Tucson are headed for the cool, comfortable high country of the White Mountains. We were out running errands yesterday and there was a steady stream of cars and campers rolling through Show Low. Two of those rigs that will […]

We left Santa Fe RV Resort in Apache Junction, Arizona about 10 yesterday morning for the 144 mile trip to our old hometown of Show Low, in the White Mountains. But the difference between the two places would make you think you were in different parts of the country. We started out in the desert, […]

Yesterday was our last day in Apache Junction, and as much as we enjoy visiting with Terry’s parents, Pete and Bess Weber, we’re ready to get back up to Show Low, where it is a little cooler, and we can get another grandkid fix. I spent part of yesterday doing some bookwork and maintenance on […]

We pulled out of Juniper Ridge RV Resort about 9:30 yesterday morning, drove twelve miles  in to Show Low, and then followed U.S. Highway 60 south 48 miles across the White Mountain Apache Reservation to the Salt River Canyon, a dramatic chasm that folks here in Arizona refer to as the “Other Grand Canyon.”  The […]

Yesterday we were up and out of the bus early, making a road trip to our old hometown of Show Low, Arizona. It is 175 miles from the Pinal County Fairgrounds to Show Low, and every foot of it is scenic. U.S. Highway 60 winds its way uphill from the Valley of the Sun to […]
