Sorry for the delay, I haven’t had internet access since the hotel I stayed at in Kingman, AZ on the 16th. 😦
Even though my car lacks air conditioning, my trip was surprisingly comfortable with the exception of when I drove through the Mojave Desert. Lol. That may have something to do with the cloudiness of most of my trip and the bouts of rain. 😀
After doing a little hiking up to Chasm Lake on August 13th (okay, I didn’t make it all the way to the Lake because of hail when I reached the tundra… still I got some good pics), I drove down to see a friend in Colorado Springs and her new baby. Then spent the night in Pueblo, CO. Not much to show from Pueblo, but here are a few pics from my hike. 🙂
Yep, see that mountain shrouded in cloud? That’s where I was hiking at. Lol.
Then when I got back into town this view awaited me. Some freaky looking clouds if you ask me.
Then on August 14th I drove from Pueblo, CO, to Albuquerque, NM, with a stop in Las Vegas, NM, for lunch. 😀
Had the best biscuits and gravy at Charlie’s Spic and Span! 😀
The 15th, I drove from Albuquerque to Flagstaff, AZ. And boy was there a shift in scenery!
The 16th, I began to head toward Kingman, AZ, with a slight detour north to take a peek at the Grand Canyon’s South Rim. 😀 I always thought the drive to the Canyon would be desert and primarily treeless, but apparently when you go to the South Rim you go through the Kaibab National Forest.
Not sure what was happening on this land, but it looked pretty bad. 😦
I decided to take the park and ride option at the little town of Tusayan. It worked out great, they’ve really got the system streamlined. It’s like a city transit system. And I was greeted by Fred Flintstone along the way, too. 🙂
That’s all I have time for today. Part 2 will have Grand Canyon pics and the remainder of my trip to Cali. 😀
