Workout at Himmel Park

One thing I enjoy about being in Tucson is working out at Himmel Park. It’s an 8 minute bike ride from where we stay and they have all the equipment I need to do my body weight workout.

On the west side of the park are pull-up bard and parallel bars for dips and l-sits. Once I’m done there I head to the west side where there’s a bar for rows and I do push ups on the grass.

Leaving Grassland: for the winter

It’s that time

We aren’t leaving forever

It’s just a bit too cold

For this trailer and desert rats

We will be back

But until it’s warmer

We will be south of here

That’s a pretty crude poem but practice makes perfect and besides I’m not charging for this content.

So today we left Mancos and Grassland to head south for the winter. Our plan is to spend some time in Tucson and Phoenix. Then head west to Havasu and then further south to Mexico.

Last night was chilly. The furnace ran most of the night. At least until it ran out of propane. So then the fresh water tank or tubes froze a bit and the water pump wasn’t working so well. So we hand sandwiches for breakfast as they require no water to make and little washing afterwards.

Kate had coffee with our friend Kelli and her little one Rayne. He isn’t even a year old yet but seems huge.

We locked up the gate and bid farewell. Until New Years Eve anyway but we won’t bring the trailer up for that.

Our plan today was to make it to Flagstaff and spend the night in a friends driveway. The drive took us through Kayenta in the Navajo Nation in the northeast corner of AZ.

The scenery in this area is like being on another planet. The roads are a little bumpy but not as bad as most roads on the east coast.

Driving day: Day trip to the Dr in Frisco CO

My knee is feeling like a pretty serious injury so I am going to see my ortho who fixed me up three years ago. Hoping that surgery isn’t necessary but it feels like my injuries from the past. Which means surgery.

Either way it was a beautiful/terrifying drive through the mountains. The top photo was taken at Vail Pass, Colorado.

The snow started appearing in Glenwood Springs
