The long journey

It was a long drive from Vegas to Tombstone.

This is Wickenburg Arizona. It is about half way between Phoenix and Vegas.

The drive was 8.5 hours or really 10 hours after you add in stopping for gas/food. All the same though it was a nice drive until we got to the Suprise/Sun City area just north of Phoenix. It was about 3:30 PM and we were just in time for the start of rush hour. That combined with the stop lights every 30 feet and all of the construction made for a miserable drive though that area.

Phoenix to Tuscon was pretty un eventful. One thing that suprised me was the amount of vegitation in Arizona.I was expecting it to be more or less like the Vegas area....mostly mountains and desert. It was not. There is much more vegitation in Arizona than I expected including large swaths of farming.

More to come.....
