We finally arrived in California on day three of our trip. The drive went by pretty fast with lots of stops at fruit stands and the In-N-Out drive-thru. That night we stayed at a hotel on route 66 in Barstow. I was later told by many Californians that wasn't a good idea. Oh well. I didn't think it was all that bad. The hotel pool was a much needed break after driving through the mojave desert all day. I got to drink a cold beer and listen to my cali playlist I made for my ipod while watching the palm trees sway in the breeze.
These are from the first two days of our road trip. The time change was messing with me so I was
pretty tired. I kept a journal along the way jotting down little things I wanted to remember.
Some highlights from these two days were seeing dust tornadoes on the Texas plains, the desert skies,
browsing at EVERY indian souvenir shop in New Mexico, eating tons of white cheddar popcorn and
gummy worms in the car, having egg sandwiches and grapes on the side of the road in Texas,
listening to every album on both of our ipods, the cute wigwams in Holbrook, and seeing the Grand Canyon for the first time. Those pictures are coming soon. I needed a whole post for them! Hope everyone is
having a fun summer.
