But Tuesday was a new day. We headed east (well, we can't head west much or we'll fall off the continent into the Pacific Ocean).
Tonight we will sleep in that wonderful town of Flagstaff. Having arrived at almost dark, I didn't have any opportunity to take photos. Maybe in the morning...
We drove through Ventura County and Los Angeles County and then entered the US's largest county by area-San Bernardino County. As I said, we are headed east. This first day we detoured a bit to drive along the famous Route 66.
We have gone from 500 feet in elevation to 7,335 feet as we crossed the Arizona divide east of Williams. We've passed avocado and citrus orchards, valleys of Joshua Tree cactus, ocotillo cactus, creosote bushes and drying tumbleweeds, and beautiful mountains and mesas covered in pine tree forests. Yes, all this in one day. The change in vegetation is staggering.
Tomorrow? After breakfast with Son #1 and his lovely wife who drove up from Phoenix to meet us, on to points east!
