Vegas to Phoenix…

Got up around 9am, we had a 6 hour drive ahead of us today to Phoenix plus we had the Phoenix show tonight so had to make good time on the road and didn't really have a lot of time to stop, plus we would also lose an hour as we left Arizona and entered Nevada! If all went to plan we would be at Gail and Joe’s (where we were staying the night) around 3:30pm, we had a Mexican restaurant booked for 5pm with 15 or 16 of us then the show at 8pm!

The drive was pretty uneventful to be honest, i drove all the way and Kami slept in the backseat all the way!

I've done this drive a few times both ways and its just flat dessert land with the odd cactus and the odd gas station every so often. it does get quite scenic as your driving through the mountains though and it was a beautiful day, the sun was out and the was hardly a cloud in the sky.

Cactus!

Miles of nothingness!                          Scenery through the mountains         Kami asleep in the backseat!

We got to Phoenix around 3:30 right as planned, Gail and Joe had left Vegas an hour before us but had got a little lost on their way so only arrived 10 minutes ahead of us. We all chilled out at Gail and Joes and got ready for the show, Joe’s brother Tom and his girlfriend arrived ad around 4:30 we headed to downtown Phoenix to the Mexican restaurant.

  1. I love the desert, so I like these photos! But maybe Kami sleeping through yet another long haul is the best one, heh. At least that drive was better than the one after...
