Tom Travels Days 13-14, Driving L.A. to Austin

November 7, 2010

Days 13 & 14 consisted of back-to-back 14 hours of traveling. Day 1 via I-40 east from Los Angeles to Albuquerque. Right by the Mojave National Forest, through Needles, CA on the Colorado River. Crossing the border into Arizona and up, up in elevation to Flagstaff, AZ. From there I drove through the Petrified National Forest into New Mexico towards Church Rock and eventually making into Albuquerque at 2AM MT. Day 2 involved the boring and manure-filled flatland of west Texas into Austin. With few adventures to speak of, I’ve decided to leave this blog to pictures of the drive…with a little twist. Enjoy!

In the penultimate pairing, not a metaphor, in a 1-hour span I saw two pink cars in Albuquerque. I don’t recall seeing any pink cars in my previous 29 years of living:

Another pink car!
