Where I stayed
The Quality Inn with the pool
John and I ended up having some Cline "Ancient Vines" Zinfandel which I would suggest any wine lover trying...yummy. We also had an appetizer and just sat at the bar talking to a guy who had lived here for a few years. We discussed everything under the sun. Before we knew it a couple hrs had passed and we had a great evening
At one point near the end a stern looking cowboy fellow with a wide brimmed hat and a monster belt buckle sat down beside me. He was one of those silent types who looked like he might start a bar brawl at any moment (imagine Clint Eastwood as a sullen man on steroids). Although I love people watching, I believe we were the ones being watched this time. We soon went back to the hotel deciding to return in the morning for breakfast.
Later at the hotel we went for a dip in the pool and met a wonderful elderly couple from Tucson. We pontificated on travel, economics, and the world at large. The hot tub was a bit too hot and the pool was a bit too cool causing us to jump back and forth for the perfect mix remaining until closing time.
Today we plan on heading to the Petrified Forest then Mesa Verde before starting our trek home.
