Day 1--April 8, 2018
Typical Day 1 with all the traditional stops. First order of business is breakfast at Starbucks on our way to the 78. Followed by the not so much fun trip along the 15 through Orange and Riverside county. The good news is In & Out Burger is only a couple of hours away…our 2nd traditional lunch stop.
With all the important stuff out of the way…next stop is Needles, our first night.
Day 2--April 9,2018
Grand Canyon is only a few hours away. Fuel up and hit the road. Piece of cake, right? Wrong! For the second time in as many trips, we discover the tread on one of our Airstream tires is separating. I should have followed my rule-of-thumb that when one tire in the set goes…replace them all.
Just as cool as the view...close encounters with the locals was a big first day surprise.
Heading back to camp...stops for photo ops were made at Navajo Point, Lipan Point, Moran Point and Grandview Point
