My son is having his first experience driving a 10 ft U-Haul, a rite of passage, don’t you think? I made the first day a short one so he could get used to it. We visited the famous Cadillac Ranch, which Toby and I visited in September. This was my son’s first visit.
I wanted to visit Palo Duro Canyon, but it is reservation only because coronavirus says you can pack Home Depot, but not a state park. I was an idiot and booked my reservation for the wrong day.. So we went to Wildcat Bluff, which was pretty. It was pretty hot, which was hard on Toby. At home, when the summer heat hits I limit our hikes to early morning, and we head for the cooler altitudes on trails with plenty of shade and cool water. It was nice, though, and I am glad we did it.
When we went to check in at the hotel, music was playing in the parking garage but the door was chained shut. Apparently, Marriott had a system error and reserved us rooms at a closed Courtyard. The reservation hot line lady was apologetic and very nice, and got us rooms at a nearby Residence Inn. Toby had some dinner, and he is wiped out.
I hope you are well, and I hope we are not boring you with these travel posts.
