And there was this to deal with:
And of course, the obligatory Welcome Sign shot:
The views were changing as the miles went by and the temperature was rising (up to 102!)
And before we knew it we were rolling into Arizona. (Waves to the "Decor" family). The Welcome Center was closed so Thelma and Louise had to improvise at a rest stop further down the road in Texas Canyon. Beautiful red rocks.
So, tomorrow it's onto our last leg of this veeerrrrrry long drive, but one that will be worth the effort. We've been told that Stanley (see sidebar) will be there to greet us when we arrive as we may get there before The Writer and Sammy get home from work. Looking forward to seeing all of them.
