Joan has taken hundreds of pictures of the flowers that are blooming everywhere in the park (check out her Facebook for more pics)
|We even spotted a very unusual plant and after a quick email discovered it was a Camissionia plant that has been infected with a virus. Sure looks cool though.|
We met some new friends, Joe and Gay from Good-Times-Rollin. We spent a couple of days checking out Valley of Fire, Anniversary Narrows and the Botanical Cactus Garden at Ethel M Chocolate Factory.
Yes I said Cactus Garden at the Chocolate Factory. If you're ever in Vegas, check it out. It's free and well worth the time.
But I think someone once said "all good things must come to an end". Today was our last day at Echo Bay....really, no fooling. Easter Sunday was our last workday; today we spent the entire day preparing for the trip to Colorado. Joan worked on the inside and I worked on the outside. We started early and by mid-afternoon we were tired, sore and very happy with all we had accomplished. We have lots of stained glass lamps, bowls and sun-catchers that all had to be wrapped and insulated. Joan did her version of spring-cleaning while I washed the car, cleaned the front RV windows, made sure the bikes were strapped and secure and packed the basement with all our outdoor stuff.
Tuesday morning we're headed to Grand Canyon where we'll meet our co-workers from Oregon Larry and Jean. We're planning to spend 2 days there before heading for Mesa Verde and then Moab. After that we'll mosey (check your southern slang dictionary) towards Chalk Creek arriving sometime around 4/15. We're real excited about that so......
Stayed Tuned. More to Come.
PS....checking our blog stats the other day we noticed that we just crossed the 20,000 'views' mark. Thanks everyone.
