Day One: Orange County to Flagstaff, AZ

I'm so mad at myself becuause I forgot my card reader. Might have to pick one up on the road. So for now, no pics. Truthfully though, I took very few photos, because we just drove thru the California and Arizona desert so far and I'm very familiar with how that looks.

Left Orange County a little later than expected, around 11:30, so we didn't get to Flagstaff till after 8pm. Stopped In Barstow for lunch at Del Taco (unknown fact: the Barstow Del Tacos are the best in the world. They started there!). Then got a National Park Passport stamp at the Mojave National Preserve while we were still in Barstow. Another little known fact (except by family) my husband and my SIL's husband (the brothers) were both born in Barstow, so this little stop was essentially a must for the women wed to brothers born in Barstow. Onward to Flagstaff...a good 4.5 hours from Barstow. Pup (to her new home on the east coast, thus the trip) in tow the 3 of us listened to mixed cd's till our next pit stop. After arriving in chilly (28 degrees) Flagstaff, we had dinner at Little America.

Tomorrow's destination: Amarillo, TX.

Can you come back now? I can't wait for 5 more days.

Somehow I never thought of it being so cold in that part of the US. But it's been abnormally cold here for the last few days so I guess it can happen anywhere.
