March 20 - 26

We left Quartzsite on Tues the 20th and stayed the first night at Lake Havasu City, AZ. We camped a few miles north of town on BLM Free land. This was the first pull with the new 5er. It did well and Bob was happy about it.
Wed. morning we headed toward the Grand Canyon. We had some problems with the engine overheating a couple of times and had to pull over and let it cool down. But eventually we ended up at the Grand Canyon. We went in hoping to find a campspot in the Grand Canyon but they were full. Can you beleive it at this time of year? We then went back out and are camped at the campground a couple miles out of the park. It's expensive here and we had to spend a few more days than usual because of the truck. But the host was very good to us and gave us a couple nights for free.
We took some wonderful pictures and I will post them later on another post as this is the 1st time I've been able to hook up to internet in the campground.
Yesterday we went to the IMAX theater to see the Grand Canyon movie. It was very good. There are a lot of tour buses up here, lots of helicopters and planes touring the Canyon. Next time I come here, I want to take the mule ride into the bottom of the canyon. We were told that you need a 3 month in advance reservation for this. But plan on spending a full day if you do this. It's a 4 hour ride down and 4 hour ride back to the top.
I'm going to try to get some sunset shots tonight of the Grand Canyon. It is supposed to be spectacular.
On the road tomorrow to head to Monument Valley!
