Back home after long trip out west. On our way to Meteor Crater in Arizona we ran into sand storm blowing across I-40. Unbelieveable! Don't know how Jim kept the rig on the road. Had some small damage to the awning but able to continue trip. I-40 shut down for one night so we camped in Flying J. Managed to inhale LOTS of sand and developed some breathing problems which remained for the entire trip. Still having cough but saw doctor yesterday. Weight 133.8.
Enjoyed seeing the Grand Canyon, Antelope Canyon, Zion NP, Bryce Canyon NP, Capitol Reef NP, Arches NP, Canyonlands NP, Monument Valley, Hovenweep NM, and Mesa Verde NP.
Trip ended on very sad note. My niece, Maggie Brown (18) was killed in a car accident in Indianapolis IN. Leaving Mesa Verde on our way to Santa Fe, NM, we got the news. Cancelled rest of plans and headed straight to mom's in Palestine, TX. Flew to Indianapolis on Monday, 5-25 to attend funeral next day. Still cannot believe.
