Real glad to have stopped off in Santa Fe. Looks like a great place to visit in a covid-free summer. All the adobe would give one the impression that the buildings all look alike but there's quite a nice variety of architecture to appreciate. Definitely a one-of-a-kind town, one of the most unique places I've seen in America. I also liked it being so close to the adjacent mountain range.

Went down Canyon Road in the RV towing the toad...probably not a good choice, especially if there had been more traffic (not much activity at all). Lots of uneven pavement to jostle the RV around, some narrow gaps but the worst of it was a few low-hanging tree branches. The weather was cool...in the 50s or low 60s, but felt colder because of the wind.

Hanging out in Gallup now...will probably take the "southern" route home afterwards (through Phoenix & Tucson)

My impression of Tucson is likely to change...decades ago I made a plane switch there - no gangplank - just down the stairs onto the tarmac. When the door of the plane opened it felt like getting hit by a blast furnace...I think it was 115 that day! Should be a bit cooler in December, huh?

We've been to NM twice during Covid times and each time the 14-day quarantine was described to us as "14-days or as long as you are in the state if less than 14."

You were permitted to do most things normally except eat indoors at restaurants/bars, etc. Museums, and such may be closed or restricted. We spent a week in ABQ and 4-days in Santa Fe. We got take out, wore masks. Stayed distant from other people and engaged in no gatherings.

Which by the way... is exactly what we do at home in our house north of San Antonia. No real difference.

Thankfully there wasn't much of a crackdown. The road signs mentioned the 14 days, but there was no "border patrol" questioning about why you're entering the state and how long you plan on staying.

There was ONE checkpoint, but it actually was Border Patrol, probably checking for illegals coming out of Mexico. It was a road diversion into a weigh station just north of Las Cruces. Didn't even have to talk to the agent...just got waved through. Guess he didn't notice the 45 illegals and the 32 kilos of cocaine hidden in the back of my rig!

We have friends in ABQ and today (Sat, Nov 21st) they told us that the entire state is on new 14-day lockdown to try to get control of the rapid rise in illness and over whelmed hospitals.

Spent all day Sunday in the Petrified Forest...just enough time to see it all. The Blue Mesa hike was probably the nicest part.

Yesterday was Walnut Canyon in the morning then onto Sedona in the afternoon. The Canyon "Island" hike was great and definitely made you appreciate today's living conditions in comparison to what they endured centuries ago.

Wouldn't want to go down 89A to Sedona in inclement weather! Sedona was just jam-packed! You'd never know there was a pandemic with all the activity going on there. A beautiful little town but not all that RV-friendly. If you pull into the wrong street or parking lot with a sizable rig, you may have great difficulty getting back out. I spent the evening in Cottonwood and uncoupled my toad for the ride back to Sedona and a hike on the Airport Mesa trail this morning. Hit Montezuma Castle National Monument in the afternoon...the National Parks annual pass gives you more incentive to visit the lesser-known parks...well worth it!

You're seeing some nice places so far. Thanks for your updates!

We first went to Sedona 30 yr. ago and fell in love with the quiet town, scenery and hiking. Have tried it half a dozen times since then, including two years ago and vowed never to return because of the crowds and commercialism. It's sad to see how they let it expand.

Enjoy your further travels!!
