Well, at least it wasn't snowing, and the wind wasn't blowing, but it was still colder than a well digger's ass. Looks like we had a little snow last night too, but the sun was shining bright and I was refreshed from a night in a real bed, (although I'd have really rather camped). And at least it gave me a chance to get my PC and phone charged up.

I headed southeast out of Tuba City on Hwy 264 across the Moenkopi Plateau and through the Hopi Indian Reservation. It was a beautiful ride over the high desert, but still bitterly cold.

I took US 91 south in Ganado down towards Chambers where I'd hop on I-40 for a short twenty-two mile stint to Petrified Forest NP. I took my time cruising through PFNP taking a lot of pictures and video.

Ruins and petro glyphs from Indians that inhabited the area around 1300 A.D. Nobody knows exactly what caused them to leave.

I exited PFNP at the southern end and took US 180 down to Concho where I hit Hwy 61 and rode that into Show Low. I searched for a campground on my iphone and found this great little place right on Show Low Lake just south of town. I pitched my tent, cooked up some freeze-dried stew, and prepared for another cold night. Good thing I invested in that good down bag from REI before I left.

Tomorrow I head south, and hopefully start getting into some warmer weather.
