We're at over 6,000 feet elevation so the temperature is cool enough to look for a sweater before taking the pups out for their morning walk. It does feel good however and we don't need to turn the air conditioner on while driving... at least in the morning.

We crossed the continental divide today so I guess that puts us about half way there on the trip.
Its an easy drive at this point.. just point the motorhome west and stay on highway 40. No by-passes or other roads to get us and/or the GPS confused.

We ran into a few minutes of rain today but hardly enough to smear the bugs on the windshield.

We filled  up with diesel after crossing into Arizona and are happy to see the price still below $4.00 per gallon and paid only $3.80.  Interesting experience as when I pulled into the diesel pumps another Class A motorhome was also pulling in. When I was walking to the office to get our fuel pump turned on the driver of the other motorhome asked what kind of hitch I had. When I told him a Road Master, he asked if I wanted to buy a Blue Ox one. I said no but wondered about things when I saw him pull away from the pumps without getting fuel.

Arizona has some nice rest areas and we decided to stay the night at one after a 350 mile day that put us between Winslow and Flagstaff.
