We were all packed up and on the road by 9:00, heading south down the Needles Highway to Interstate 40 West. Another gorgeous travel day...although there was a little cloud developing along with some wind.
The countryside changes so quickly...quite incredible...we drove through gradual slopes leading up into the mountains and then into the vast flatness of the Mojave Desert...but it wasn’t what I was expecting. It is flat but full of vegetation...scrub but lots of green with colourful ground flowers...not lush greenery but brownish green. Hmmm....kind of hard to explain...but all very beautiful in its own way. Unfortunately, my camera battery decided to die, so I didn’t get many pictures.
We didn’t unhitch and decided only to hook up the electrical; not bothering with water since we had enough water in the tank for the night...there were no sewer hook-ups. So, I just had to unpack the inside and we were set.
Once it got a little too chilly, we headed inside...time to get dinner ready anyway. After barbequed burgers, we sat watching TV while I updated our travel journal...I’d really like to try to keep it up to date...if possible...
