October 9-12, 2014 - Overgaard, Arizona
We had planned on staying another day and hiking in Chaco Canyon but it rained some overnight and in the morning we could see a very large storm coming our way. We did not want to get stuck in this pasture so we hurriedly got things packed up and ready to leave. We were on the highway only about 5 minutes when the rain hit and it rained on and off for a couple of hours. We are so glad that we left when we did or we may have been stuck in that pasture for a couple of days. We are disappointed that we did not get to finish touring all of Chaco Canyon but we will definitely come back.
We drove to Overgaard, Arizona and are staying about 8 miles outside of town in White Mountain Park-Sunrise Resorts. We plan to stay here for a few days and relax and enjoy the White Mountains. We have been serenaded to sleep every night by the coyotes and see evidence of elk on our daily dog walks around the resort.
The resort is closing for the winter on the 15th and they have already shut down their laundry room, so Friday morning we drove to Show-Low to find a Laundromat. We got our laundry done, had a nice lunch and did some grocery shopping.
