Day 63 - Cameron, AZ

A short driving day. Only 89 miles to Cameron, AZ, which is kind of near the east entrance to the Grand Canyon. There was is a large gift shop here. The RV park is $30 and we are staying here for two nights. A lot of so-so ratings for the campground but I think that people are expecting a resort. It’s just a campground with gravel pads with full hookups. There is some traffic noise but it is only about an hours drive to the south rim of the Grand Canyon.

The picture is just a shot of the garden where I can get wi-fi. Verizon is almost non-existent at the campground which is just across the street.

We did go to the Watchman Tower which is just inside the east entrance to the Grand Canyon. Crowds were light but still a lot of people taking selfies with the view behind them. What’s the attraction of selfies?

Tomorrow, we are thinking of hiking the rim trail near the Village and the Visitors Center. And maybe take the tram to the western most point.

Very cool place! Haven't been for a long time, 1990? yeah long time. And 1973 before that, and some time in the 60's before that. Time to go again. dreaming. and enjoying your posts.

Has been ten years already since we've been there. Thanks for the memories, Richard.

I think the last time I was here was around 1979. Things have changed quite a bit...

Ten years seems pretty recent. What time of year? Around now seems pretty ideal...
