Boondocking off a forest Rd near Flagstaff may not be someones first choice of places to camp while in AZ, but it was a welcome reprieve for us. For the most part it was a quite peaceful place, other then the large trucks speeding down the loose graveled road creating dust clouds that could choke a chicken! No really! They started about 6:30am each morning and ended somewhere around 3ish, with about twice an hour drive by. Even with the dust clouds, we enjoyed being surrounded by ponderosa pines, volcanoes and PERFECT weather!
At 7,500 feet, we were still towered by an old volcano known as the San Francisco Peaks, with top elevation of 11,500 feet (yes, it is a ski area). The nearest town of Flagstaff, about 15 miles away and 6,900 feet, is much different from what most people think of AZ and the desert regions.
This was our relax (and work) week – meaning we didn’t do a lot of site seeing. We did a few hikes, but mostly this was our time for regrouping. We gave each other massages ( yeah baby!), took relaxing hot outdoor showers, played games ( let you guess who won), enjoyed happy hours (many. . . in the same day) and even enjoyed a few edibles (some more than others).
Oh, Oh, Oh and then~there~is….. the Alien story! Oh, Yeah….we will talk about that another time!
