Only three stops today. Since we stayed the night in Holbrook, AZ our first attraction was the WigWam Motel. Say “Hi” to Mater!
Now, a detour from our regularly scheduled road trip – Petrified Forest. I still don’t get it, but these old trees are just lying around the desert landscape. There used to be a forest here?
Route 77: The rest of the day was spent driving to Tucson, AZ. To get there, we passed through Fort Apache Indian Reservation where the mountains reached close to 7,000 feet. The steep inclines and turns were AWESOME!
We reached our destination in time for dinner with Timm’s sister Debbie. She prepared us a home-cooked meal and birthday cheesecake (if you knew Timm very well, you’d get the joke). She has a beautiful home with unique items from their relatives that decorate the walls and furnishings, including a Butterick Patterns cabinet. I’ve never heard of Butterick Patterns, so there’s history to be learned here too.
