I’m learning about this whole concept of blogging throughout a road trip. Lesson #1: Don’t save the blogging until hotel check-in. Way. Too. Tired. Tomorrow I might try adding a little bit to a post throughout the day. Probably something I should have figured out beforehand, but oh well.
Most of today’s drive was through southern New Mexico and Arizona, which could not have been prettier. Long, flat roads with distant mountains, cliffs, and boulders on both sides, giant fluorescent white clouds and blinding sunlight. Many billboards advertising a rest stop featuring “The Thing” (What Is It? Alien Conspiracy?). Gift shops specializing in hillbilly figurines. Huge variety of cactus. RVs. EVERYWHERE.
But the best part was a quick stop we made an hour or so outside of Tucson. The mountains and plains surrounding us were dusted in snow – right up to the road! It only lasted for a few miles, then it was back to blazing sun and sand and prickly cactus. Adi in particular had a great time – when I’m not so beat I’ll post the video.
Tomorrow: L.A. and up through California!
