An early out for a 560 mile drive and the loss of an hour due to a time zone change. Off of I-10 onto CA 177 then CA 62? anyway The heart of the Mojave Desert.
Mariella and I about 26 years ago or so paddled a canoe on the Colorado River in Topock gorge in 105 degree heat. We asked the outfitter “would we fry like bacon”. He very tactfully stated we would not. We swam a lot and it RAINED. River pic below.
There was tons of scenery changes into Kaibab and Coconino Nat’l Forests.
Looong drive to Monument Valley but worth it.
On the valley floor tomorrow. Peace out Tres dog
