Days 399 - 402
Rolling over Hwy 550 was a breeze. We visited Mesa Verde National Park then hit the road again.
We're now traveling through Arizona for the next few weeks.
National monuments are closed sporadically (we couldn't go to the 4 corners). There are trails or natural wonders we want to see that are closed.
It's frustrating for sure to constantly have to change our plans.
But such is life.
Our current RV park has people squeezed in like sardines. It reminds me of Boyd's Key West... without the island vibe.
We are ready to move on to the Sedona area where we'll be free to hike the natural wonders of the area.
We DID visit the South Rim of the Grand Canyon yesterday. It was a beautiful day so there were thousands of people there. We were still able to keep our distance though. But holy cow... the massive amounts of people talking and sometimes invading your 6 ft bubble is getting frustrating.
Those from other countries have been the worst, but I'm sure they feel that way when we visit their countries.
We are just trying to live our best life. Creating a life many dream of. All the people exhaust us.
If they weren't so rude, it wouldn't be so bad. Thankfully, there are still some people on the planet who renew our faith in humanity. If there weren't, Jordan and I would happily become hermits. Although, I think he'd get quite bored only having me to harass. 😁
It's been an odd ... and wonderful ... adventure thus far. With multiple truck problems along the way (we both thought yesterday - OK girl, if you don't knock this shit off, we're trading you in)... we've had our share of frustrations and moments of thinking "what the hell is going on."
I'm not sure what the lesson is, perhaps we're both needing to learn more patience. Patience with ourselves...but REALLY patience with others.
There's a lot who are requiring our patience.
I had to remind myself yesterday that today is a new day. We can continue to carry the annoyances of previous days OR start each day fresh. Full of gratitude for all the things we have. Gratitude for all the things we get to do. Gratitude for one another.
That is the only way to get through these strange times.
I am thankful for you.
Much love and light out to all who need it. Talk to you again after a day or two in Sedona.

I had a dream that I was traveling all over the world. In less than 6 months, I sold almost everything I own...bought a Toy Hauler (the "garage" is my art studio) and am now living wherever, whenever...just me, my art, and my cats.
