Where I stayed
Sky City RV Park
Think we'll take advantage of the Monday night Prime Rib Buffet dinner special while we're here, and we can report back on it to Ann & Ken and the rest of the gang that will be coming back here next Sunday after the Fiesta.
A long drive yesterday through some beautiful scenery (Snake River Canyon, Tonto National Forest, Payson, AZ) toward Grants, New Mexico, where we were planning to stay for 3 nights while doing our final shopping and filling (and emptying) of tanks in prep for our 5 days of dry camping on the grounds of the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta. Enroute, however, we decided to drive 20 minutes further and stay instead at the RV Park at Sky City Casino and Hotel, where we could fuel up cheaply, and be that much closer to the Fiesta grounds, as we have a limited window in which we can get to our site on Tuesday.
