Arizona Drift, Nov 2017

After spending October in southern Utah’s red rock canyonlands we headed south, drifting into Arizona. We had a goal here; checking out possible areas to set up a home base. By now we were used to living in our twenty eight foot-long, fifth wheel trailer. But we still wanted to establish a home base to travel from, and return to.

Monthly Report; October 2017:

We’ve hiked through remote red rock canyons in Utah, froze in the snowy Rocky Mountains, and marveled at the dramatic coastline of Oregon. North America is fantastic, and we can’t wait to see more of it. Continue reading
