Continuing our trek westward, we pulled in to Hidden Valley RV Park near Albuquerque, NM for the night. It was pouring rain when we pulled in, the office was already closed (but they had our registration info in the box at the door). We weren’t able to get a pull-thru site so we had to disconnect the car in the rain storm out by the office, then drive on back to our spot (#53 all the way at the back) and then back in to our spot for the night. Since we carry our food with us, it was time for me to fir
e up the grill to cook some bratwurst for our dinner.
As I was tending to the grill and Kathy was working in the kitchen, the skies began to clear and take a look at what we were blessed to see.
The park wasn’t anything to write home about, but the rainbow was a pleasant surprise.
The next morning we headed on to Gallup, NM (USA RV Park) where, although a nice clean park with nice level gravel sites, had few trees BUT we were lucky enough to get a spot right next to a shade tree. Here again it rained after we pulled in so I wasn’t able to cook on the grill. We went on to a local Mexican restaurant where we had a good meal and then visited the famous EL RANCHO HOTEL in Gallup where so many famous actors and others visited during the 30’s to 60’s. I took a few pix of the building inside and out so you can see the impressive architecture.
So in the morning we head off to our final destination of Camp Verde, AZ for our winter home. More on that later.

You will love Camp Verde. I 17 North is a pretty steep haul, but all thr RVers make it with just a little patience.
You’re right Mike, I-17 can be a bit of a roller coaster ride, but we made it safely and we’re glad to be here.
