changed the heat for fresh cool mountain air.
The day started OK but then the trip got a little "nerve racking", but we are safe and sound. Going up the mountain our van overheated and we had to stop and cool the engine at a very scary turnout. (read his input for March 17th)

Luckily we found a campground close by where we stopped and hooked off our
camper trailer and the van got a break to cool off.
A fellow camper told us that this mountain road causes a lot of trouble for many travellers because of the long and steep incline.
So, tomorrow we will be off to Roosevelt Lake and the Apache Trail for a day trip.
Off course without the camper trailer.

I tell ya, it happens not often, but today I needed a beer!
After a quick dinner of shepherds pie and a mixed veggie salad I am ready
for a long good sleep.
That should not be a problem, it is quite cooler up here than in the desert.
