Ole Southwest Tour

Adventure Day Thirteen-Kanab

Thought for the Day:

Wherever you go, no matter what the weather, always bring your own sunshine.

This saying was posted at the check in desk at the hotel, by Anthony J. D’Angelo. How appropriate for today.

OOPS – Well we didn’t make it to Kanab today as planned. We got up to it spitting snow and the wind blowing yet still! Snow dusting the cars and cold! Marcus comes out to a flat tire on his car, so a group change his tire after finding his spare flat also. Danny headed out first, followed by Nixons at 8. Clausens, Jorgensen’s and us head out at 8:30. It is snowing harder and building up on the windshield and the wind is unrelenting. We stop in Kayenta to get gas and go on. Then about 5 miles out of town Jim’s pickup stops. We were leading so stop at the first little road. John helps him and they get it going, but by then a group of about 6 Model A’s and the trouble truck go by back to Kayenta. The decision is we will stay in Kayenta tonight and head out tomorrow, hoping the storm has passed. We are able to get 10 rooms at a Hampton Inn. Marcus and others are staying at another hotel. Danny made it through to Kanab. Last we heard Nixons made it to Page.

It is a nice stop. The Navajo Code Readers have a museum next door and they open it up for an hour for us to go through. I find it very interesting and buy a book about one of the Code Readers.

Once again internet is so slow I can’t post pictures, so will do it later.
