We left Houston Mesa Elk Loop today and headed for Flagstaff and
a fill up of diesel. Hopefully that gets us all the way to Salt Lake City.
(We shall see). Did see snow on the San Francisco Peaks….
Then onward & north to Utah, destination Goosenecks State Park.
Picked up rain all the way through Monument Valley.
Had a few white knuckle moments on a 14% downgrade and a 10% downgrade
with a few 25 mile an hour curves. Naturally, that’s where you meet the
Big Rigs crowding the center line. Thank goodness for exhaust brakes and
down shifting. Only had to hit the service brakes a couple of times.
Needless to say it was another learning experience.
As for Goosenecks State Park, it is everything and more of what I read about
…. and pictures don’t do it justice.
Tonight “Huey” is on the Edge! (No earthquakes allowed!!)
