Thursday Mike and I hauled a friends vintage 1955 Spartan trailer to Flagstaff.
Saw a little sundog over the Painted Desert.
Drove towards a major storm approaching Mt Humphreys.
Flagstaff has a very fun oldtown where I bought gear for my upcoming trip on the Colorado River.
Had dinner in the funky Galaxy Diner.
Where some nice old cars were parked in the lot.
On the return drive Saturday we again drove through a storm passing Mt Humphreys.
It rained so hard even the Little Colorado River was flowing at Cameron.
Then the clouds broke up over the Painted Desert.
And the sun shone on the Colorado River at Marble Canyon.
But the clear sky didn’t last as we approached the Kaibab Plateau where home is.

I really need a Red Rock fix.
During the summer Mike and I visited several places I’ve yet to post about. On one of our shopping trips via the Grand Staircase Escalante we stopped at the Dam View in Page, Arizona.
We walked a short trail to the overlook.
Past marvelously eroded sandstone sculpture.
Where shadows stood tall.
Right up to the edge.
The Colorado River far below.
10 million tons of cement called the Glen Canyon Dam hold back and alter the natural flow of the mighty Colorado River. This creates the 186 mile (299 km) long Lake Powell with 1960 miles (3154 km) of shoreline for people to recreate on.
While life looks on.
