Early this morning we went to visit Montezuma Castle National Monument cliff dwellings before leaving town. It really has nothing to do with Montezuma. Early settlers assumed that it was Aztec in origin and named it that.
The rest of the day was spent driving north and looking for a free place to park. A few possibilities failed, either they were closed or just not suitable for our 35′ motor home. In the hills near Flagstaff we were finding piles of snow in the road ditches but the roads have all been clean and dry. Bernie made a 12″ snowman.
We did find a free spot to park in National Forest land by Williams, AZ, which is about 30 miles west of Flagstaff. This area doesn’t open for camping until May, but hopefully nobody will come chase us out. We’ll be leaving in the morning.
By the way, the high temp for today was only around 72F 🙂 but the low should be 28.
