Day 2 continued again
We explored Calico a bit then left only to end up in a huge backup from the big rig accident at 2:30am. There were hundreds of trucks that could not use the detour the cars were to go onto. The road was very old and the trucks would have totally destroyed the detour road in a matter of minutes. So, all the trucks were trying to get parked along the sides of the freeway where ever they could put them, hundreds of them! Poor truckers, we really felt for them and prayed for the families of those in the accident.
It was a long ride to the Grand Canyon because we were so behind in time. We were trying to get there before the sun went down. Unfortunately the signage in the park is very poor and we spent a good time trying to find the campsite. Once found we hurried to set up camp in the late dusk.
All is well that ends well!
