NM/AZ/NV/UT/CO Ride - Third day (17-May-2010)

Starting out from Grants, we stopped at the El Mapais National Monument visitors center. We didn't spend time looking around the monument area, but learned that the NM was formed to protect the volcanic rock formations in the area.

Our next stop was the El Morro National Monument. Early European travelers (first the Spanish)visited this site due to the availability of fresh water collecting at the base of the rock. The travelers carved their names in the rocks... The next three photos are from El Morro...

By the "fresh water" pool - I wouldn't drink it unless really really thirsty...

A very fancy inscription, by someone from Baltimore...

We had lunch at the grocery store in the Zuni Pueblo, NM. There wasn't much choice in food, but it was good.

Next stop was the Petrified Forest National Park in AZ.

Petrified tree pieces litter the desert landscape...

This was the biggest tree I saw...

We stopped for the night in Show Low, AZ. The motel was a flee-bag place, but had a good shower :-)

It was Steve's 61st birthday, so we had the waitress give him a kiss (not a clear photo, but you get the picture)...

Probably not Jeff. A couple of the guys had video cams, but I haven't see their footage yet.
