Tumblin', tumblin' Tumbleweed

Well we made it across Oklahoma, Texas and New Mexico today. It was a long and windy trek. There were very strong cross winds that blew a lot of tumbleweeds into the grill. And all those trucks, fuggedaboudit...

We got off I-40 from time to time to see what rte 66 was like. Lots of rundown gas stations and motels. Plus there were tons of rusted out cars, trucks and tractors and the odd school bus. It's amazing how these vehicles are left to rot on the side of the road. We saw lots of horse farms and cattle ranches. There was a sort of olfactory Doppler affect as we could smell them before we saw them and after we passed them.

Tomorrow, finally off to Sedona. We picked up another hour heading west today, so chances are we'll be up early. If so, we'll get on the road at the crack of dawn and arrive in the early afternoon.
