Today blew my socks off (or in my case, flip flops off)! Every state is more beautiful than the last. Well, maybe just beautiful in way different way. My friend Mike said “just wait til you get to Arizona”. He was right! As I drove in, I broke down in tears and thanked God that I am alive today to see all of His wonderment. If you had told me 10 months ago that I would be making this journey, I would have said, “Impossible”. Goes to show that nothing is impossible if you throw out all doubts and just believe!
I spent most of the day in the Painted Desert and Petrified Forest. The road that leads through the desert is part of the original Route 66. I met a lot of people along the way from all over the country and a couple from Brussels. Seems Route 66 draws a certain type of people; kind, fun loving and adventurous. Here are some pictures from today.
