Thanksgiving In Overgaard, AZ (part 1)

This year we decided to get away for Thanksgiving. That is what we did, too. We went to a census designated place called Overgaard in AZ. It was definitely remote but just what we were looking for. We had the most relaxing vacation ever. At the resort we stayed at they had a photo booth for $5 you could dress up and take as many pictures as you wanted with your own camera.

Also at the resort there were a couple of restaurants and some boutiques which was really random in this town. We enjoyed some ice cream at one of the shops!

We did a couple field trips while we were there. It took 2 hours one way to get anywhere but the drive was easy and beautiful. We decided to go see some ancient Zuni and Hopi Indian sites. It turned out to be my favorite thing we did.

It was 37 degrees when we started our hike to the ruins and our tour guide, Carol, was amazing. The boys just loved her. We got to take a little bus out to the site and then hike up the side of a lava flow to the ruins.

All of the hills you see below are ancient volcanoes it is one of the biggest volcano fields in the world, who knew, over 400 volcanoes in all.

Back at the resort, we played lots of pool with our new pool sticks that grandpa had gotten for us! Owen is almost ready to play!

Stay tuned for part 2 😉
