Heading South

DAY 17 Adam's Xtreme Off Road Adventure

It was pretty much at the halfway point of our adventure when it was time to leave Colorado. Sadly Maggie May was left sitting in the garage in Del Norte. Still perplexed why she stopped running. 

We spent four days in Del Norte, working on Maggie May. Okay, so we did some wheeling too.

The next stop was the Grand Canyon, but before we hit the National Park we had to cross Wolf Creek Pass, a high mountain pass on the Continental Divide in Colorado. 

This was around the time of the Arctic Blast that blew thru the United States so the peak was close to a white out. 

I was excited to finally be heading to the warmer Southwest. It also meant for some awesome wheeling ahead. Along the route to Arizona was Mesa Verde National Park, the first stop on the second part of our adventure.

When we reached our destination in the park we decided it was too cold and too late to be setting up our tent. We unloaded a few things in the Jeep to make more room. We  spent the night on the Mattress Firm mattress in the back of the Rubicon. I would give the mattress five stars for comfort for sure. It also really helped to have our own personal heater with Jersey.
