Day 3 - Gallup to Goodyear
We started today at the Hotel El Rancho in Gallup, also home to the Roadfood-reviewed El Rancho Restaurant.
Bobbi and I split Huevos Rancheros and Atole, a blue corn hot cereal. The eggs were especially good with the green chile salsa.
We ate the Atole like we would grits or oatmeal. Unlike grits, this ground corn cereal had no grittiness.
We passed the wild fires near Flagstaff. We could see them from as far away as Winslow, about 60 miles away. The fires were not near I-40 today, but some state roads were closed.
As there were no Roadfood reviewed places near our destination, we decided to try In & Out Burger based on the chain's cult-like following. And a cult it is ... there can be no other explanation. Copp's without the custard, but with inferior burgers.
We don't get it. This wasn't even the second best burger on our 2-1/2 day trip. These were not the best fries either. But the Diet Coke was cold and fizzie!!!
The thing in the front is the "veggie burger" from the "'Secret Menu'" (wink, wink). I think I get the joke now.
Our final destination on the trip was the Wigwam Resort in Goodyear, AZ. Check out the resort website
, the place has an interesting history.
One of the gorgeous pools. It is off season, so Bobbi & I had the pool to ourselves this evening.
