So we went to Canyon de Chelly National Monument and broke ALL of our furniture!
Seriously. All of the furniture.
The road didn’t even seem that bad, it was just like being out on the ocean with large swells. Swells are way better than chop. But I guess the furniture didn’t think so since it’s pretty used to chop on all the washboard roads we frequent.
When I opened the door, there were about 50 little ball bearings all over the floor, a handful of screws and a nail. It turns out that all the ball bearing were from our shoe drawer in the sofa and the screws were from various chairs. I’m still not sure where the nail came from. Now the shoe drawer is just on the ground – it’s not a drawer anymore.
Oh well, I hate this furniture anyway. After living in the RV for four years we’ve worn it right out. Our chairs are broken and the pillows on the sofa are crushed.
Our summer project is a reno – we’re going to build a day bed in place of the sofa (keeping the shoe drawer), build a decent work space for Ray (because I’m hogging the dining room table), and replace the two recliners with one really nice one.
But it was all worth it to get to the campground at the top of the ridge nearest Spider Rock so I could pop over there for my sunset shot.
I had no idea the last rays of light were going to glow off the rock in the background until it happened since this was my first evening in the park. What an awesome park! It’s definitely on the “return to” list and next time hopefully we’ll have better furniture.
