Salt River Canyon--May 2, 2013

Dale, Sherry, Dad and Jan
Today is my Dad's 93rd birthday.  We celebrated last Saturday with a trip to Red Lobster, his favorite restaurant.  The dining room at the Garnet (assisted living) was going to be closed for the day so we decided to on that day.

We went to Sundance, where we store our RV when we are vacationing at our house. Sherry and Dave were already hitching up and we were on our way before 9 am.  The winds were very bad early and the roads were very dusty.  We pulled the fivers through Florence, and then went east on 60 through Globe and the Salt River Canyon.  The winds were bad all day but the sun was shining and the views were spectacular for the passenger.  The curves and mountain roads didn't allow the driver much viewing of the scenery.

Sherry and Dave arrived at the Elks before us.  Our new Rand McNally GPS took us the long way through Show Low.  We pulled into our reserved sites and walked up to the lodge to register.  Our site had a tree that was too low.  We changed to a different site and Sherry and Dave had to change because they couldn't find the key for their electric box.  We decided to go to a Mexican restaurant.


Every turn was another beautiful view

We were sucking air when we saw the warning of the height for the tunnel

  1. That is a great picture of your girls with Dad. I've had a lot of folks tell me they won't take their RV up through Salt River Canyon. We've done it in the truck and it sure is beautiful. Would you do it again? You forgot to tell us what the height warning was for the tunnel.
