A Day In Window Rock, Arizona… (GA121)

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 4,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.
I’m currently in my 22nd year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails RV Resort in La Connor, Washington. I’ll depart here July 24th.

 

 

Since my RVing life is changing (see above), I’m starting to re-visit previously visited places. So rather than constantly re-blogging past entries, I’ve decided to do something different.

 

 

In 2011-2013, Mary and I did a 682 day, 12,679 miles in the motorhome and 8,000 miles in the Bronco, circumnavigation of the United States, which I called The Great Adventure. I called it so because other than my oldest granddaughter’s high school graduation in June in Connecticut, I didn’t know where we would be going or when we would be there!

 

 

So, unless I do something really different and unusual warranting a new blog entry, I’ll be posting entries from that trip.

 

 

 

This entry was posted May 24, 2012…

 

 

 

We arrived in Window Rock mid-afternoon, the day before yesterday and parked adjacent to the Navajo Nation Museum.

 

 

Window Rock is to the Navajo Nation, as Washington, D.C. is to the United States. It’s the capital of the Navajo Nation.

 

 

We started our day yesterday by leaving the Bronco attached to the motorhome and walked uphill about 1.5 miles to see Window Rock…

which, at the base, is the Navajo Nation Veterans Memorial Park…

 

 

 

 

 

With a beautiful statue honoring the Navajo Code Talkers of World War II…

 

 

 

 

 

The area adjacent to the memorial park contains all of the Navajo Nation government buildings including the office of the President. We stopped by to meet him, but he was in a meeting. The is the Navajo Nation Council Chamber building where the 24 representatives of the Navajo Nation meet to conduct their business…

 

 

 

 

 

When we tried to enter the front door, it was locked. Darn, what to do? We came across these two gentlemen who came to our aid. On the right is Edmund E, Yazzie, Chairman of Law and Order, and one of the 24 representatives, called Delegates, of the Navajo Nation. On the left is Eldridge A. Anderson, Legislative District Assistant to Council Delegate Roscoe Smith…

 

 

 

 

 

Eldridge proved most helpful to us. First he gained us entrance to the Navajo Nation Council Chamber building and turned on the lights so we could take photos. This first photo is a 180 degree photo of the council chamber looking from the rear towards the Speakers desk…

 

 

 

 

 

This second photo is the opposite…looking from the Speaker’s desk out over the chamber…

 

 

 

 

 

and then up close to the Speaker’s location…

 

 

 

 

 

Eldridge continued to provide us with all sorts information as he volunteered to drive us back down to the major intersection of the town where we went to the flea market…where Mary bought some more Navajo Indian jewelry…of course! She’ll soon have enough to open her own store! Thank you Eldridge for all your help. You truly made our visit to Window Rock more enjoyable and you would make a great Ambassador for the Navajo Nation!

 

 

 

 

 

After the flea market, we ate lunch where I had a Navajo Taco…

 

 

 

 

 

We spent the afternoon in the Navajo Nation Museum enjoying the beautiful paintings and photographs depicting the history of the Navajo Indian people…

All in all, we had a very enjoyable visit to Window Rock, Arizona. Visiting capitol cities of various locations is another joy in the full-time RVing lifestyle!

 

 

Today we will move further on down the road.

Window Rock, Arizona

The motorhome is now parked at the Paradise Casino in Winterhaven, California right across the Colorado River from Yuma, Arizona. I’m here with others…hanging out and enjoying the nice weather.

Mary is tending to business at home. She has made her flight reservations to rejoin me on January 28th.

Yesterday was a sunny day at 74 degrees. Forecast for today is sunny and 76 degrees.

A more relaxed mode..

After our 682 day on-the-go 2011-2013 circumnavigation of the United States, we have decided to slip into a more relaxed mode. In the next few months we will be traveling through areas previously explored. Unless I do something unusual, this Blog will feature a photo album from the circumnavigation and will change daily.

To read about today’s photo album location, click this link… http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Window_Rock,_Arizona

CLICK ON THE BELOW PHOTO. ONCE YOU ARRIVE AT THE PHOTO ALBUM, SIMPLY CLICK “SLIDESHOW” AND ENJOY!
