We’re trying to soak up as much of the local flavor as we can before we leave the Holbrook area. On Friday, we had to drive to Show Low to check in with some businesses so we decided to drive on to the Salt River Canyon to check it out. Our friends Wendy, Cindy and Ross had all driven up through the canyon, on their way to Holbrook, and told us how beautiful it was. It’s a long way out there and a long way back but it sure is pretty. We had a “bumper” picnic, while at the pull-off area…taking in the beauty around us before we started back to Holbrook.
Today we took the trike and rode to Homolovi Ruins State Park, just before you get to Winslow. This is the site of what used to be a 1200 room pueblo of a Hopi tribe. Archeologists are still working on the area, since it was only set up as a state park, less than thirty years ago.
Nice day out on the bike…even with sunscreen, we both got a little bit of sun. Temp was only in high 70’s but without the breeze, it was really hot. Not sure what we have in store for tomorrow…Nascar will be on TV about the time I’ll be eating breakfast. That sure is different. How to fit my morning political shows in with Nascar…some channel surfing tomorrow for sure. Hope everyone is having a relaxing weekend.
