Our trip was amazing!!!
It didn't start out too well - with three hours sleep Thursday night, a rainy morning, a car that wouldn't start, making it to the airport with only minutes to spare, Paul's name being on the 'most wanted' list, resulting in him being both frisked and having an extra long and thorough search done at security, severe motion sickness on the flight... who in their right mind could call that fun?
Once we got to Phoenix everything got better. A sunny day. Eighty degree weather. An upgrade to a Jeep. And beautiful scenery.
We took our time driving from Phoenix to Lake Havasu. So much to see along the way!! We spent Friday night sleeping in the back of the Jeep in a Walmart parking lot. Not the best idea if you're hoping to get a good nights sleep. But it was fun, and provided many great memories.
Saturday we hung out in Lake Havasu City. We went swimming in the Colorado River, did some site seeing, and drove through the neighborhoods admiring the gorgeous homes and lawn work!
Saturday afternoon we headed to Las Vegas. We spent the evening walking the Strip. Saturday night was spent in the Jeep again, this time sleeping in the parking lot of a 24 hour diner.
Sunday we took our time driving back to Phoenix. We went by the Hoover Dam, and stopped by a 'beach' we discovered at the end of a long, winding road.
We drove a total of 695 miles!! It was pretty sweet, the speed limit is 75 mph on some roads, though trafic was almost a consistant 85 mph. We got up to speeds of 100 mph... which was probably my favourite part of the trip!! I love driving fast!!
Here are some pictures from the trip:
