GREAT - at least we survived the masked serial killer who knocked on the next door hotel room and missed ours. Then as we were strapping Ciela in the power came back on!
So freshly showered we blasted on the road at 8:30am, had breakfast in Moab, Utah. A beautiful red-rock adventure town, and now on the Closson vacation wish-list!
A little later we crossed over into northern Arizona and were immediately disappointed...so we scrapped our plans and turned east away from the Grand Canyon (and beggars outside dumpy gas stations/laundromats) and cruised (easily) into New Mexico
Ah, again we were on beautiful roads. With absolutely fricking crazy truck drivers - passing passenger trucks on the shoulder and slamming onto their breaks in front of other semi's to force them over to the right lane. - beyond that...great roads.
Had so-so Chinese food in Albuquerque and then I think we got lost somewhere and ended up in awesome Roswell New Mexico (the geek MECCA). "I KNEW I 'shoulda' made that left 'toin' in 'Albakoikie'"
Town of Rock Point:
R: lobsters are pointy too

Town of Blanding:
that wasn't very exciting
I knew those gloves would come in handy!
