The Four Corners

View Our Journey on Meike Carter's travel map.

After visiting Mesa Verde National Park we squeezed in a quick visit at Four Corners.
The southwestern part of Colorado and the Four Corners area are backdrops to over 40 movies.
The place was supposed to closed at 4:30 but they still let us in at 4:38. We were lucky and made it just in the nick of time, took some pictures, checked out the area and talked to some other RV travelers. They just came from the Grand Canyon, and told us where to camp and what other National parks to visit. They mentioned Antelope Canyon, the painted desert and Petrified Forest NP.
The sun was setting pretty quick, we had to say our goodbyes and continue our drive thru the desert to Gallup, NM.
I was pretty excited, because this was our first night sleeping at the Walmart parking lot. We heard so many people talking about it and were anxious to find out for ourselves how it feels to stay overnight in such a public place.
We parked amongst other campers, cranked the generator long enough to warm the coach, kept the slides in and went to bed.
I couldn't fall asleep for the longest time, my mind kept racing, recapping all the cool places we have seen already.
Suddenly our logo for our upcoming Vlog popped into my head. I almost woke Tony up to share my idea. It was my lightbulb moment and with that, "C's the JOURNEY " was born.
If I operate like that, I might just have to spend more nights in the Walmart parking lot.
I must have been in a deep sleep when Tony woke me up to let me know he is getting some groceries. It was only 3am but he couldn't sleep anymore and wanted to get a headstart for the day. An hour later I had coffee made, got dressed and had the coach ready for takeoff. Tony arrived with armloads of groceries. We rolled out minutes later, arrived at the Continental Divide while it was still dark, took some pictures and drove toward the Petrified Forest NP.
What a way to start the day!
