There is not a visitor's center at this monument, just a board with some information and a restroom. There were several notices about protecting your valuables as there have been some break-in of cars in the area. Some phone numbers were posted but only 7 digit numbers, no area codes. You would think that a national monument/park would realize that 10 digit numbers should be posted- folks from everywhere visit these places with cell phones from everywhere.
Hungry from our hike along the canyon we went to the Standard Diner for lunch.
The weather in the morning was pretty nice but as we returned to the campground after lunch the clouds became heavy and dark. It began to rain quite heavy and the temperature was dropping. We wanted to stop at the grocery store but waited until late afternoon to do that. A storm system is to pass through this area tonight and tomorrow with possible snow. We are scheduled to go into the FMCA Rally tomorrow at the Balloon Fiesta Grounds in Albuquerque. Sure hope things don't get too bad.
