We are already into 2018. Gerda and I went to Mexico for a week by the end of January. Here are links to the pictures from the Moon Palace hotel, Chichen Itza and Rio Secreto. Rio Secreto was an experience of a lifetime. We felt like cave explorers exploring a cave for the first time. If anyone of you comes into this neighborhood I can only recommend this tour.

Since we have our travel trailer we are going camping on a regular basis. In February we went camping in Cave Creek. and in March we went to McDowell Mountain Regional Park.

In spring we went for 3 month to Europe. Here are some pictures from our trip to Austria. In July we went with friends to Colorado and did some white water rafting

Over the Labor Day weekend we went with the motorcycle and some friends to Williams. We made a day  trip to the Grand Canyon and another day trip along Route 66. 

In September we went on a HOG Rally to see the fall foliage in Colorado. We went from Phoenix to Winslow. Stayed at the La Posada hotel. We continued to Santa Fe where we stayed 2 nights. From Santa Fe we took the "High Road to Taos". We visited Taos Pueblo and made a day trip over the "Enchanted Circle Scenic Byway" . From Taos we went to Denver where the HOG Rally started at the Mile High Harley Davidson dealer. From Denver we went over the Independence Pass to Glenwood Springs. From Glenwood Springs we took the  Grand Mesa Scenic Byway to the Black Canyon of the Gunnison. From there we went back to Denver where the HOG Rally ended with a celebration at the Mile High Harley Davidson dealer. it took us another 3 days to drive back from Denver to Phoenix. All together we drove 2,762 miles (4.445 km) in 12 days. 

2018 is coming to an end and we wish all our friends and family a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
