I really wanted to head to Globe, AZ and spend the night. Then head over to Roosevelt Lake and down the Apache Trail but Sister Suzy and my sister weren't feeling well after spending 2 nights in Durango, Co. So, we stayed on US-160 as we left Durango, came across the Navajo Nation, into Flag and on into Phoenix.
I think it was the altitude, because after a night here at the apartment they were both raring to go, again. We went up the Apache Trail to Tortilla Flats to the souvenir shop, had Prickly Pear Ice Cream while we were there shopping for trinkets for my sister to take back with her to Wichita. I ask my sister if she wanted to go the rest of the way up to Roosevelt Lake. She said she had seen enough of the Apache Trail and wasn't interested in the windy-ass dirt road above Tortilla Flats. Wuss! We did stop on the way back to the apartment at The Fry Bread House for Navajo tacos. Yum!
Since my battery charger for the camera was acting up, I only got a few pictures of our ride on the Durango to Silverton steam train.
I would recommend if you want to go across Southern Colorado the week-end before or around Memorial Day to make any room reservation well in advance. The desk clerks told us that everybody graduates that weekend, which explains why there were very few (if any) rooms available at the inn.
I hope everyone is having a lovely day.
