I thought I'd do a quick review/write up of our trip last month since I've had a couple PM's asking. All in all, the trip was fantastic! We traveled a total of 2,234 miles averaging 8.9 MPG for the entire trip.
Day 1 we left the Dallas area and traveled to Albuquerque, NM and stayed at https://americanrvpark.com
for one night. While on the way we stopped for a photograph at the Continental Divide.
Day 2 we traveled to the Grand Canyon and stayed at https://www.visitgrandcanyon.com/tra...YaAjrhEALw_wcB
for 3 nights. It was pretty much a parking lot, but a bit nicer. Elk wondering thru the campground at all times of day definitely helped! We were all quite satisfied with 2 full days at the Grand Canyon.
Day 5 we left the Grand Canyon and traveled to Santa Rosa, NM to stay the night. If have NOTHING kind nor nice to say about this campground, so I'll just leave it at that.
Day 6 we left Santa Rosa and traveled to Palo Duro SP https://tpwd.texas.gov/state-parks/palo-duro-canyon
for 4 nights (located just south of Amarillo, TX). He had to stop at Cadillac Ranch while enroute!
Be aware, there is a 10% downhill grade going down into Palo Duro.
While at Palo Duro SP we did horseback riding & attended the show that the park puts on...Texas Outdoor Musical with BBQ dinner served before hand. The show was fantastic...although very hot! While camping in the canyon the A/C struggled to keep up with the heat and the inside temps would climb to about 84 and then start coming back down at dusk. Usually to about 75/76 degrees by bedtime. Lots of wild turkey's and road runners running around the park
