May 28th & 29th: Flagstaff, AZ

We made it in from Albuquerque at a reasonable hour because we got out of town before the winds picked up again. When we arrived in Flagstaff, we managed to find a nice restaurant. Dessert was a Chocolate Churro with homemade Chocolate Gelato that was really good!!! Yum!!!!

Temps here were in the 40's overnight. We had to turn on the Aqua Hot for heat in the coach. (Aqua Hot is a diesel fired boiler that provides heated antifreeze to small radiators with fans behind them and it also provides hot water for showers, etc). We also turned on our fireplace for heat.

There is a lot of snow on the San Francisco Peaks which hover over the city. It snowed in Flagstaff last Thursday and they have been having some light flurries at night. Lows are expected in the 30's while we are here. Altitude at our campground is 6,950 feet.

Flagstaff is a college town. The University of Northern Arizona has 31,000 students enrolled.
