Off to the Grand Canyon - 2014 - Day 1

Back in 2014 we decided it was time to visit the south rim of the Grand Canyon and to visit a couple other sites along the way. As always the fastest way from Lubbock is through Clovis and Santa Rosa to I40, then go west. We always try and break the trip up so that we never go more than 400 miles in a day or eight hours on the road. Generally, we try and keep it in the 300 miles and six hour range. After fueling in Albuquerque, NM we stopped for the night at the Sky City Casino and hotel. 
They have a 36 site RV park
 FHU (Full Hook Up) with cable. They provide a shuttle service (driven by the security staff) to and from the casino/restaurant 24 hours a day. You are kind of in the middle of nowhere,

but it is just off I40, about 50 miles west of Albuquerque. For being so close to both the Interstate and Railroad tracks, you hear very little noise from either. On a trip in 2016 we did try the restaurant and found it acceptable. There is a little store on the property that though not over large does provide a fair variety of chips, snacks and frozen meals. There is also diesel and gas available at the location. A good place to spend the night.
