Here are some pictures from Sunday and Monday:
Acton campground – where we stayed the first night, as seen the following morning
I 40 sign – this highway spans eight states, beginning in CA and ending in NC. We will follow it almost the entire way.
Afternoon shadows - The afternoon sun makes the mountains glow and highlights the craggy texture.
Avi campground – where we stayed the second night, me in the hotel and my parents in the trailer
Climbing – we climbed to over 6,000 feet in elevation, which makes for cool weather but terrible gas mileage
Fueling – filling up the tanks; or, saying goodbye to an arm and a leg
What I have christened "Flip You Off Mountain" – funny rock formation looks like a hand flipping the middle finger
Flagstaff campground – where the parents stayed the third night
Puppies in the car – the dogs all harnessed up in the back seat of my mom’s car, looking cute as ever
